a quasi-open race that still has a high degree of importance…i wonder if it would work for the 26.2 OT’s??? 😛
It wouldn’t even work for the C-C championships if a lot of people showed up. I’m sure Brian could attest to that after seeing how it worked and most likely getting lapped by at least a few of the leaders out there.
Exactly. I got lapped by about the top 1/3 of the field. It wasn’t a problem since there weren’t too many people in the race, but having an open race for the marathon trials on a criterium course is a disaster waiting to happen.
