Coffee Crit

I got my butt out of bed at 4:50am to catch the coffee crit this morning. Fail. They passed me on mills and I turned around but do to a biomechanical (I'm too fat and slow to turn the pedals faster) I was unable to catch on to the group. 30 mph on EP true and still falling back. I am always reminded why I don't do road racing, mountain bikers are not so serious and would have waited up for a rider to catch on a 'training ride', but I know the whole rodie thing is fast as you can. This is why I don't even own a road bike, I did get a good hour work in gave up on seeing the group at the mall after 15 miles in 45 minutes I decided to go home and have coffee and ride a little later in the morning. It's bad when 8am is later in the morning.

That must have been you with the blinking headlight just west of Grand. We typically see some commuters on that stretch so no idea who it was. Plus, that stretch is the lead out for the sprint to 5th street.

no big deal, Rich is the one who talked me into getting up at the crack of dawn anyway.
