Great weekend of racing out at High Point. This is the first year for the event and I am sure it is going to grow to be a huge event on the Carolina calendar if not on the national calendar for racing.
Mark and Ben held it down in the CAT 3 race for Big View Cycling in what was a very fast and difficult criterium. At the end of the day a break went away with 3 people in it so it came down to a field sprint for 4th.
I raced the CAT 4/5 combined 35 plus looking to stay in for the duration and see how the form is coming leading up to the state crit championships June 12th. The pace was pretty high averaging 40kph on a six turn course. Each lap of the .7 mile course brought us back under the giant glass and steel structure that makes up a transit terminal. It is open air and there was a band playing and the crowds were out actually cheering us on, which is pretty impressive for a 4/5 event.
