Spencer Guy won this C race at the Thursday Night Crits, quite handily. We were both planning on saving ourselves for the B race , but got a little too ambitious. I chased some primes and Spencer chased the victory. By the start of the B race my heart rate was still redlined and discretion caused me to drop out after a few laps.

This past weekend was the State Crit races and McKinney's Bike the Bricks, making for a long weekend of racing and while no SMU riders won a State Championship jersey, some strong performances occured. Preston finished just outside the medals in the Cat 4 race, Caryn won bronze in her age group race, and Frank and Nicky raced in the hard category (U23) and didn't get any moves to stick. Nicky was toward the front and in good position but plagued by some breathing problems that caused him to drop off. A visit to the doctor seems to have a cause determined.
The weekend started with McKinney's Bike the Bricks and the local paper had this picture on it's front page! Spencer is on the left with Preston in the Park Place jersey behind him. Preston raced both the 4/5 and 3/4 race getting a 4th out of his labors, and Spencer managed a top 10.
