Is it common for frames to get ruined in crit crashes? All the ones I've seen have been bar tape, shifters and occasionally front wheels.

Yeah, the late start is going to mean not having to get up at 4am, so I'm all for it. It looks like the weather will be nice. There is no doubt BA is better supported (also a much larger ride).
