Speed Week? What’s Speed Week? I thought I spent a month and a half in the South to go to Wafflehouse? Southern fast food aside, I’d never been exposed to that “flavor” of racing - even NRC stage race crits, while fast, are pretty mellow and controlled. The races during Speed Week are nothing short of chaotic. The level of physicality is out of this world. Some guys in the Speed Week packs have no issue taking you (and possibly themselves) out for 15th or 50th place.—Nate King
