Wolfpack Crit

Alright...i meant to write about the wolfpack crit this past sunday down in nc earlier this week but i didnt.  the race was pretty fun, decent field i think about 40guys...with some guys from dlp, time, and ben king there.  our race was supposed to be 60min but it was cut to 45...it was a fun course, had a small little hill...the turn into the hill was awesome cuz it was downhill and open and you could just bomb it...it was a short course they said a k but it felt shorter it felt like we were doing like 40s laps.  on the start line the ref asked if there were any juniors i raised my hand she told me to roll out after the race...i asked if my 55x11 would pass...she didnt like that, but i thought it was kinda funny...i feel kinda bad about it now though.  So the race...it wasnt super fast but it was pretty aggressive...the kelly boys were in the front (me, ryan and curtis again)...we all took our turns in some moves, but nothing was really sticking one move looked promising with about 6 guys and both ryan and curtis got in it, then i countered and was off a short while when they came back...but nothing the whole race was really away longer than 3 or 4 laps.  With 3 to go Ben King was off the front and no one was really chasing...I attacked and went across we got caught soon I countered with two to go into the hill but it came back fast...ryan rode the finishing wave well and finished 3rd!  It was a pretty fun race...it was decently warm too, like low 50's probably.  

Then i got back late sunday night...on Monday the shop up in baltimore called and said my new team bike was ready...i was so pumped...i went up there and picked it up.  It is a Trek with sram force...i have never used the sram before but i think it is really nice...ive only ridden it once outside so far..im going to race it this weekend...im pumped!

Don't be too hard on Judy (the official) - she was having a rough day :-) When she's less stressed she's quite nice.

And dude, 55x11? WTF?

Nate Wilson said...

screw the white stem.

What's up with the Black handlebar tape and white Brake covers?

Other then that, that bike is pimpin.

But looks kinda slow???

maybe you would have done better if the point of your attacks were to check your form and not for any kind of tactical excuses.. idk just sayin
