Niagara Classic Critical Criterium

Niagara Classic Critical Criterium

Bdot, myself and my mother ventured off to Welland to watch the final of the Niagara Classic today. Early. I donโ€™t recall ever reading 7 AM on a clock on Sunday. It was raining and my sister mentioned the course would be dangerous. It certainly was. I witnessed no less than three crashes. It was horrible to see and totally creeped me outโ€ฆ after all my sister was in the race. I certainly gained a lot of respect for the cyclists today. They fly by at an amazing speeds, wearing very little protection except for a helmet. It became hard to watch for me after witnessing the first crashโ€ฆ the poor woman rolling around on the pavement bleeding, moaningโ€ฆ it turned my stomach. The race went on and the team my sister is on was involved in, what looked like, a fairly serious collisionโ€ฆ. since they share the same uniform for a minute I thought it was my sister. The Criterium (the cyclists call the โ€˜critโ€™) had a very different feel to it. Much more intense, I was far more anxious watching the crit than the road race yesterday. I was very glad when it was over and all the riders, and of course, my sister, were still with us. I was surprised at how emotional it made me. Iโ€™ll post a pic a little laterโ€ฆ

Update: never did post a pic. ๐Ÿ˜›
