Matrix Crits @ Meadows Foundation, Wilson Block
As Frank and Nicky had already done enough to qualify for Nationals, this weekend was the King of Crits AKA Matrix Challenge for the trade teams, primarily Park Place and KingRacingGroup. The pollen really got to a lot of people, and short of Caryn's 4th and 5th place finish in the woman's Cat 3's, the weekend was full of bad luck. The highlight for the SMU team was a successful debutante race of John Gorum who rode, in the new kit to a top 10 finish in the Sunday night Cat 5 race. Spencer Guy was also at the race and finished just ahead of John. The cycling community in Dallas made its way to the Wilson Block, a collection of Victorian homes that house various non-profit groups. The setting is beautiful for cycling and a yearly highlight.
