Not all crits are created equal. Eight corners and a hill make for a stupid hard race. Then UHC shows up and turns the screws on everyone just to make it extra special. They put two guys in the break. The break got half way to lapping the field. The two UHC guys dropped back from the break and the team chased the break down like clock work. Amazing. Only about 30 guys finished the race. 

I felt like death but hung on to also finish in the money. Any day you make enough prize money to warrant filling out a 1099 is a good day to be a bike racer.—Dan Chabanov1
