2014 Morton Criterium

20140628_093655_IMG_0512This weekend I raced at the 2014 Morton Criterium.  It was my first crit and I had a lot of fun!  It was a completely different animal than the mountain bike races or cyclocross races I’ve done in the past.  I’m really happy with my race.  I raced in the cat 5 race as this was my first crit.  I was in the action for the majority of the race sitting in second or third.  My numbers were an average of 25.1 mph for the 30 minute race and a top speed of 33.4.  My full Garmin data is here.  A big thanks to my teammates for the advice and help with the preparation and Bloomington Cycle & Fitness for making sure my Tarmac was in tip-top shape!  I’m looking forward to the next crit!

  1. I’m glad to see this crit is back. I was a member of the club that put on the first one back in the ’70s. IIRC Greg LeMond raced there as a kid.
