Supposedly the race was quite a fast one, ~41-43km/hr. It was noticable towards the end with less organisation and people less willing to do the work, the speed dropped right off and we started to bunch up. With 53 riders, some of the corners got a tad dicey decent during those slower moments.
Given that it was my first crit, I spent most of my time towards the middle-tail end, getting comfortable with the circuit and the people I was riding with.
Moving up through the field, finding a wheel I liked, then all of a sudden ending up on the front end. So I got to drive the pace for almost a lap - hard work
Unfortunately my Garmin ran out of juice around the half way point, before I ended up at the pointy end. But I'll link the segments below.
For anyone thinking about racing, and being unsure - just jump in and do it. It's SO much fun and you learn a LOT. I'm looking forward to the next one.
Well... that is fast... I've never done any road racing (a lot of mountain bike xc race though) so I don't know how it is to be in a big pack of riders.
For going 41-43km/hr, can you tell me how fast you go on when there is not much wind on a relatively flat course ?

What was this circuit built for originally?
It was built specifically for bike racing. You can see some video of it from one of our club races here.

OT question: how did you get the video sync'd with your GPS location/route, HR, and speed?
Time stamps in your gps track have to match the time in your video. Here is one program I know people use:
