Richmond International Raceway Criterium

First race of the season with quite a large field. The race was won on the first lap of the race where a group of 4 guys took off. The break shrank to 3, but they were able to lap the field despite the stiff headwind.

The Good

  • I recognized that the break was a winning move
  • Went 'all in' trying to get across to the break away twice
  • Fitness felt good

The Bad

  • While fitness was good, I felt discouraged by the success of the break, and as a result lacked motivation to contest sprint

Result

10th
