USA Crits Speedweek

April 24, 2009 at 10:45 pm Leave a comment

I am very excited to be heading over to Athens, GA to kick off the USA Crits Speedweek tomorrow. Tomorrow night at 9PM, I will be racing for nearly 50 miles in front of 30,000+ screaming fans with an average speed of close to 30mph. It is without a doubt the most exciting race of the year. Check out this video describing the race that was filmed at last year’s race that includes highlights of the race:

Also Velonews has a really nice write-up about the 2009 Athens Twilight criterium.

Sunday’s race is the Historic Roswell Criterium in Roswell, GA and will feature mostly the same competitors, a great crowd, and a challenging course with a little bit more climbing. Then the racing continues throughout the week, but since I still have a day job that I love (teaching at Samford University), I will be missing all of those races and then picking back up for the last race of the series next Sunday – the Sandy Springs Classic. Also, I am looking forward to racing next Saturday in Alabama’s only nationally ranked race – the Sunny King Criterium in Anniston. Hope everyone can make it out to the races!

Short very hot ride. Cahaba river at the lowest I've ever seen it - at Hoover east ballfields shortly before running over fresh gum and cutting the ride short to clean it off my tire. Today's rollercoaster experiment - 20 repeats with Garmin 1000 forwards and backwards. Movie theater roller coaster (top) and Green valley rollercoaster (bottom).
