This story is still developing but … David Benkoski tells me he won the crit yesterday, too. If he’s not yanking my chain – DB is ripping it up. I hope he can stick it to the big guys when there is some money on the line. We all know the Benjamins will change how people race. If DB is yanking my chain then he should go back to school and study or something.
I’ll insert a little write up on DB’s race when he gets around to giving me some details.
From folks’ Facebook and twitter posts, it sounds like the crit had a little stop and go ambulance action going on. It’s too early for drama my California Elite cyclists – don’t be crashing in the P/1/2/3 Early Bird Crit! That’s like asking Hennie Youngman for a wife joke!
Here is quick account from one rider that is just getting back into the racing scene after spending his days on the Officials side of the desk.
“Some guy crashed maybe 5 laps in and then we rolled for what seemed like 1/2 the race then started going fast w 5 to go when the ambulance left. It should have been fun with mccook and freddie there, but could not see the finish. It got squirrelly at the back and since people really seemed to have trouble riding around bots dots….
On the bright side, if you were an out of shape masters track rider or even sprinter, you could have sat in this race and pretended to be unhappy. The pace was more like a Western Wheelers Touring club pace than Early Bird Crit, until it picked up with 3 to go, and then in passing you mention you are sav’n it for the track and fade off the back.”
Will add more details as i get them. Be careful of bot dots. They are some scary stuff.
