Tomorrow morning Wells Ave will be hosting a Cat. D crit for anyone very new to crit racing. My personal feeling is that everyone that reads this is at least competitive in the Cat. C race which rolls off immediately afterwards. The D race starts at 8:30am, the C at 9:00am. If you want to get your feet wet with crits, the D race is informal and reserved for newbies. Crits like Wells Ave are excellent cross training for the track, and despite what you may have heard, are generally very safe and a chill atmosphere of cyclist with good attitudes-- very similar to Londonderry.
Aaron just bought his first race-worthy road bike so the two of us will be riding out there from the shop around 7:30. Shoot me an email if you're interested in coming with.
