Richmond International Raceway Criterium Race Report

Kudos to Team Nature's Path for securing the Richmond International Raceway for a crit this past Saturday. Very cool venue. Ali and Laura headed up to race in the women's open, with a field of 31 riders at the starting line. There was a brutal headwind on the backside of the track, and a nice tailwind coming into the finishing straight of the 3/4 mile track. Several break attempts were made, the one that finally stuck was a solo effort by Ali from the inside. With four or five laps to go the field didn't bring her back in and she came in solo for the WIN. Laura managed to take the field sprint for second place.

A couple of our competitors ran into some trouble and were involved in a crash. Heal fast, compadres!
