Red Hook Crit

ちょっと遅いけどレッドフッククリットについてです。
多分日本の人はこのレースについてあんまり知らないんじゃないかと思って、レースの話をします。
レースは今年で5年目。始まりは主催者のDAVID TRIMBLEの誕生日を祝うストリートレース。要するにロードバイクで走るクリテリアムをトラックバイクで行うというもの。テクニカルなクリテリアムコースを50X15以上のギアで走るわけです。シケインとかヘアピンもあります。
リポートっってほど走れませんでした。作戦はとにかく一周目だけでも先頭集団にくらいつくってことだったんだけど、スタートから後方。そして第一コーナーのシケインでは前方で落車。ビビります。なんとかシケインを抜けても前方のライダーが遅い。でもそれをターンの続くなかで抜くほどのテクニックが自分にない。なんとか1周かけて直線で追い越すが、すでに大きな集団は遥か前方。単独で数周するも先頭に追いつかれリタイア。ほんとなにもできなかった。
レースは2010からのチャンピョンDAN CHAVANOVが4周目でアタックしたあと完全に独走で勝ちました。
ダンはRichard Sachsのチームでサイクロクロスのエリートカテゴリーで戦っている選手。
来年はカテゴリーでプロとアマチュアに分けて欲しいなと。

Red Hook Crit No.4




It was 30 degree cold and windy night.

After a couple neutral laps, 85 racers lined up at starting line.
During wait for start, I spoke to Gil, but I knew I spoke to myself.
"Only first few laps are dangerous. no need to do anything crazy."

I started race from bottom of pack. Maybe I relaxed little too much at that moment.
Clip in was smooth, trying to get to front, passing racers.
Jody(Affinity) rode such a relaxed pace, Frank(Boogie Nights B field winner) was rocking so hard.
Looking for my training mates, but they were out of my sight.
After few laps, Jason(Affinity) and Tadashi crashed at hairpin in parking lot.

I tried to catch the pack, but couldn't see how much the gap, rode alone.
Not sure at which lap, I cleared the hairpin and accelerated, and I saw leader pack went into hairpin.
Race director yelled to me "get out the course" at finish line.
My race ended.


Result

1. Daniel Chabanov
2. Neil Bezdek st
3. Al Barouh st
4. Nathan Trimble 3 seconds
5. Gerald Adasavage 36 seconds
6. John Kniesly. st
7. Kacey Manderfield st
8. Chas Christiansen st
9. John Taki Theodoracopulos st
10. Eric Robertson st


It was super fast race and lots of fun.
Course length was 0.8miles (1.28km), The Fastest lap was 1:38 by Neil Bedzek.
Thank you for all volunteer, organizer, spectator, racers and everyone who made this event happen.
