Race: Hungry Dog Criterium
Location: Gilbert, AZ (Phoenix area)
Rider: Jo Johnson
This was a rectangle course on flat road with very good surface in a business park. The length of the loop was debatable and either 3/4 mile or 1.2 mile depending on who you talked to. The 55+ men and the Masters women 40+ cat 1,2,3,4 all went off together. From the start it was really fast and I was in the red immediately. So I had to back off and find a pace to manage. I was able to do that and the race became a TT effort. I did manage to stay ahead of another rider and was able to claim 3rd spot, passing another rider as I was charging to the finish line. Good acceleration practice. Another day on the podium and collected an envelope.
