Labor Day Omnium Day 2 – Civic Center Criterium

September 2, 2012 at 12:31 am 2 comments

Summary
This was a new course using some of the same roads that were part of the circuit race last year. The course was fast with plenty of opportunities for attack. I thought I was racing well, but ended up missing a split with 18 riders up the road. In the last few laps, 3 riders escaped from the field in pursuit. I ended up 2nd in the field sprint for 23rd in the race. One good thing to take away from the race was that I was happy about the field sprint – hopefully next time it will be for something in the top 20. Here is my lap data:

I decided to head out 3 hours before the start of the race to ride some of the roads between Clemson and Anderson that I used to train on. I ended up on part of what we called the “sprint loop” because there were so many sprint signs on it (stop ahead, county line, city limits, etc…). I snapped a few pics along the way, and it was one of the best “warm-up” rides of the year, a stroll down memory lane. I went on a couple new roads as well, and there was some sort of hunting going on in the fields on either side of Fants Grove Rd – it was kinda disconcerting to be riding through all the shotgun blasts.

    It’s interesting to look at the lap data from riders in the break versus not in the break. The split was caused by good team tactics being played on a decently slow lap to create that split which seemed to never fully get away very far even though the field wasn’t chasing hard. By the time I saw them blocking and slowing the pace, it was too late as they did it on that slow chicane where it was harder to pass. I didn’t see which team slowed up to create the split. Was it 786, TT1, or a combo?

      I think it was a combination of teams since all the teams were represented in the split. At that point everybody was looking to Frank and Bobby to bridge. Given just a few more laps in the race it would have all come back together.
