This was from one of the wettest races I've ever been in. On the last lap the temperature dropped and it started pouring down. My tire on my rear wheel was quite worn, so I chickened out in the last roundabout a few hundred meters from the finishing line. I started the sprint in last position, and cannonballed my way through. I talked with someone afterwards who had seen the sprint, and she said it looked like the others were standing still. Lesson learned? Don't race on worn tires!

Holy smokes, those are some beasts in that race! Smart move, wpccrunner to go solo. Clearly there wasn't any elevation change in that race to have those sides of beef charging in to the finish. That race gives a new meaning to the cowbells the fans are using. :P

Yes the crit racing down here in Miami is quite nuts. A lot of jacked up guys on too much "protein" all wanting to win the sprint.

Here's a link to the Garmin stats. Notice the total ascent of 89 ft over 21 miles. I broke away with about 3k to go and apparently no one noticed till it was too late. I looked back about 600m after attacking and was already 200m ahead with 2km to go, so I had a nice easy stroll the last 400m :D

yeah imperial and metric sorry about that... Coming from a track background shorter distances make more sense to me in metric but longer in miles. And engineering school having me switch back and forth so often doesn't help either.
21 miles=34 km
89ft=27m

First race of 2014 in Tihany, leading the 2nd group. (on the LOOK on the left) Almost got back to the front group, but no cake, UCI Continental team Utensilnord was riding too.

What are the white things people have around their cables? Is that a timing chip or something?
