Write-up on the Beaufort Crit in Cyclingnews.
Linsey and I continued the need for Speedweek in Walterboro, South Carolina today. It was 25 laps on an approximately one mile loop in downtown Walterboro. In a basic repeat of Beaufort, I won the first prime (along with another prime) and ended up 9th. Tibco was back in action and the set up Brooke Miller for the win. I also won an imaginary prime too. These crits have been AMAZING with all the sweet money primes---so I think I must've gone BACK in time (2.2 jigawats) to a prime lap and just totally went for it. Only there was no prime in real time. Yeah. Awesome. Linsey ended up 26th and rode great.
Afterwards, 2 of the local law firms hosted a reception with food and bevies right by the course (so we could watch the men's race). It was awesome getting to check out the local legal scene in Walterboro. The local judge was there along with his law clerk. When 2 of the lawyers were figuring out who was going to clean up the reception--I indicated I thought that was what the law clerk was for? They called the law clerk over and he had a good sense of humor. At least I think so. The alcohol being consumed by the fine barristers of Walterboro along with their very thick accents made things somewhat incomprehensible--but f-word hilarious. We got treated to some more FANTASTIC southern hospitality before turning in for the night.
Tomorrow is a REST DAY and we a have a 2 hour drive to Spartanburg. I'm really starting to miss the hubs--but I don't want the racing to end! It has been such a blast!
