Last Criterium for USA season 2009

The final race for my 2009 American season was the Binghamton criterium. I have done this race the past 2 years and it is always tough. This year it was a USA crit series and NRC race.

There were a few break aways but nothing really stuck for extended periods. It was a coarse that was easy to sit on but difficult to get off the front. in the last 10 laps Hayden tried to ride across to a small group off the front and almost made it but the bunch was on a mission to pull back the break, so Hayden was pulled back in. with four laps to go it was high tempo and difficult to move up. about half a lap to go it settled enough for me to move up a bit but not enough. i crossed the line in 14th with Hayden right behind me in 17th.

Looking forward to heading home back to NZ tomorrow.
