No plaid seen in the Criterium at Temple University.
Day 1 - Fairmont Park - TTT and Circuit

the finish of the TTT
While we finished 11th out of the 19 TTT teams, we were happy with the dynamics and skills that were practiced while on the road.
After the TTT, we once again took to the road for the Circuit race. Again racing in Fairmont Park, we completed multiple laps around a 6.2 mile loop which had short climbs and long straight aways. We averaged 25 mph during the 3-lap race. I managed to finish in 9th place after a lapse in judgement going in to the final climb. While I was with the leaders going in to the climb, I was in the wrong gear to be able to drop the hammer and pull away in the way that I needed to. With the 9th place finish, I am now one step closer to the illusive podium finish. Hopefully I now have some additional tactics in my weaponry.

Arc hard, ride fast, go plaid!
