What a fun course, and great place to watch the race. Legs were getting tired at the end of the race. Still had enough for the finish.

1st crit of the year and I am pleased. Finished much better than I had anticipated. Staying strategic and fighting to keep positioning was vital and very necessary.

A few sketchy spots in the road, a few sketchy racers, a few crashes, but ended up having a great day personally. I was directly behind a crash in the last 1/2 lap of the race, and luckily managed to avoid it somehow.

It was fun to race with a fellow teammate and friend #Diesel :)

GRRRRR.....should have verified they had me in the correct finishing now I am officially placed in 5th

Great race and wish I had my head more into into the race for corners and position. Seeing someone hit the parking meter at 25+ did not help but glad he was ok. Congrats to Shawn for pulling through and taking 4th!

3 of us dropped off the back and made it a race between the three of us for a few laps. Kept making time on the corners on the guy in front of me. Came around the sharp corner near the start line and flatted. Did not have wheels for the wheel pit so that was the end for me. Wish that hadn't happened because this was easily the most fun I have had racing. "Well done" to Team 614 on the organizaton.
