Larkinville Crit Series - Race 3 Report
Here is Dr. Stephen Cheung's race report from yesterdays Buffalo Cycling Club Larkinville Criterium Series - Race 3.

Just did my first crit in about a decade or so! Rob Visser and I went across the border to the Larkinville crit near Exit 4 off I-90. Was a blast on a 1.1 km rectangle course. Well-organized and good price at $20US. They're running 8 of them, and tonight was the third. I surprised myself by how comfortably and easily I was staying in the top 5-6 riders (40 starters and 22 finished in pack sprint). The 4/5 race was 22 laps, so that's 88 corners in 24 km! Pack was generally safe except for dude clipping pedals and then rolling his tubs and taking another out with him on the very last corner. Visser kept going wide and fell over the curb at moderate speed, only one bit of road rash on left knee and some scuffs on bike. I had to brake to a stop for that, so rolled in at the end of the pack in 18th. Despite that, was a great time.

Was amazed that we averaged >40km/h for the 35 min race. Actually, I've hurt a hell of a lot more in the club Sunday hammers and Tuesday nighters.
