Well, I was going to try to enter a few bike races this year, so I went to go watch a criterium this morning. It's supposed to be one of the safest criteriums around, so I figured that I should be okay to race in it. (Don't want to get hurt and miss my trip to France!) Well, there was a nasty crash midway through the race; someone flew into a telephone pole. No one was hurt too bad, but I think that's too much excitement for me! :) The race director told me they should call it a crashterium. I'll probably do some time trials, though.
