Tour de Tuscaloosa Crit – Quick Report

March 26, 2011 at 9:48 pm 1 comment

We dodged the rain for the Saturday night crit here in Tuscaloosa, and scored a pair of top 10 finishes on the team. Team Type I had a really strong team here, along with Thomas Brown from Mountain Khakis, a strong Hincapie Development team, and strong riders from Herring Gas, Texas Roadhouse, Marx and Bensdorf, Sonic and two collegiate teams (Cumberland University and University of Alabama). There were lots of breaks and attacks, but with the long downhill everything was coming back together. I went a bit too hard at the beginning of the race making it into a couple failed breaks. My teammates Pat Allison and Wes Douglas did a great job covering moves throughout the race. Wes made it into a good looking two man chase just before 5 laps to go, but they got caught on the hill. Pat and I worked our way to the front with Pat taking 4th in the field sprint and me taking 7th in the field sprint. With Joey Rosskopf (Team Type I) powering away on a solo break for the second half of the race, that put us in 5th and 8th place for the race. Fun, fast course, great field, all-in-all a good day. Tomorrow is the Lake Lurleen road race, one of my favorite road race courses, and this year it is going to be our state road race – totally excited.
