After my RR on the 7th of Aug, I wasn't able to do our team RR and a crit I was up for was cancelled. It's looking dicey for my cat 2 upgrade at this point, but I'm going to try and set that aside....

Finally got to do a road race this weekend. It was a 3/4 with about 65 starters, including 15 women of, I think, open cats. Mostly flat and non-technical loop of 4.3 miles that did 12 or 13 times (55...

Meh. 7th and 8th in my crits tonight. Each a field of 15. I'm a lot older than most of the other guys, and anything top 10 is pretty hotly contested, but those are really just rationalisations. I'm...

Yeah, getting swamped was more about before the sprint. There's a rise, then a sweeper to the left and than another hard left and probably 80 meters to the line. Where I would get swamped is before...

I'm looking for advice. I've got a couple of crits coming up where I'd like to finish top 5, and I've got the fitness to do so. When I've got good position going into the last corner, that kind of...

Yeah, he did a bit, but I'm over it now. He's a young guy and still learning. I was fairly pissed at the time though.

Did 2 more crits this Thursday, with 2 teammates in each one. I was sort of active in the first, but nothing stuck. As we came into the finish, what was an ok position turned into swamp city in the...

Man, looks great. I'd really like to get a TT setup and give it a try, but I a) have spent way too much on bikes in the last 18 months and b) have no where to put a TT bike.

Weekly crit series again last night. Got 10th and 11th in the 2 races. The version they ran tonight had 2 basically 180s, so lots of sprinting, which is not my fave.

Iím sitting on 22 points (of...

Doubled up on 3/4 crits tonight. While it can get a little boring, having a purpose-built bike racing circuit is pretty amazing. Bigger field in the first one and a group of 4 got away almost from...

I lived in Portland a million years ago, before I started racing, so I had to look up the series. It looks like a blast! I'll put it on the bucket list if I'm ever back in the States, and near...

I raced another crit last night. Rainy, but not too cold. It's a purpose built circuit, so the camber is right and there's not oil or grit on the roads; you hardly notice it's wet.

It started...

Ben Forsyth Crit (3/4) on Saturday outside Edinburgh. Came 7th in a field of 25, which was good for a few more upgrade points. I was really active again and felt like one of the strongest riders in...

Came back this week and picked up a 4th in a crit. Teammate and I really tried to make it hard after a lacklustre race last week. I only just missed the last solo move. I bridged to a group of 4,...

Redeemed myself from getting dropped 4 laps into a 3/4 Crit over the last couple of weeks and got 7th in the next two weeks. Points go 10 deep, so I was happy with that, but more relieved that my...

Iíll go out and do a race like itís my first, then do the next one like a passable cat 2. Even Worlds from one week to the next, Iíll get dropped then mix it the whole way on the next one. The other...

I started a cat 3/4 crit last week (40 minutes, cool dedicated closed circuit) and made 4 laps (!).

Basically we had a grid start and I was at the back. A couple of folks ahead of me couldn't clip...
