Spring Fling Crit SeriesShawn Morelli
Hello everyone, I am back again with a little update. In my last post I mentioned I was competing in a four race series event called Spring Fling. This is a criterium points series. Basically every race has 3 laps (out of 20 laps) that you earn points on. 2 laps occur sometime during the race you have to listen for a bell and when you hear it sprint to the line on the next lap to earn points and the final lap you earn points. This was a very interesting race series for me. First off I dont usually race criterium events nor do I typically do points races. However before I am off to Alabama for ParaCycling Open I wanted to get some racing in. In the end after four weekends of racing I came out with second overall for the series. I am extremely pleased with the result and happy to represent all of you. One week of training left and I start my drive to Huntsville to compete. I am excited and nervous about this event for a few reasons, my goals are to race smart, race hard, do my best, represent all of you to the best of my ability and to NOT contract COVID during my travels. I will update everyone on the results from Huntsville. Chat later, ride fast, ride smart and keep the rubber side down.
