Great Training Opportunity
I've been wanting to try riding a criterium. There are a number of crituerium races in the south Florida area. But criterium races, with their mass starts and crazy fast riding around a short course, seem a bit intimidating. The criterium training camp will be the perfect opportunity to see if I like crit racing, or if I'd rather stay home and watch it on TV.
My husband has been going on a lot of business trips to Texas during the last few months. I just checked his schedule for September, and he will be in town for the two September crit races. Although he usually goes on the Boca Urban Ride on Wednesday nights, and I usually do a BRICK (bike-run) workout on Wednesday nights, we are going to try to get to as many of the crit training camps as possible.
