This weekend brings the first big race on the NYC bike racing calendar. The Grant's Tomb Criterium, like the interment of Mr Grant himself, will take place at Grant's Tomb.

The pavers haven't made their way to Branchbrook Park yet, so there will be no racing there for at least another week.

On Sunday, there's another opportunity to race the Spring Series in Central Park.

Also on Sunday is the 2012 Outdoor Sport Center Bethel Spring Series - Ris Van Bethel, for those who like to take a little trip into the country before they do their racing.

Nope, 2 guys dangling off the front. He hit it from the u-turn out, rolled through those 2 guys, and then rode the rest of the field off his wheel.

EDIT: this referring to the 4 race.

     It was a weekend’s worth of racing that I shall now type about, so here is the typing that I will do.

    I leave the area for a week, and it seems that everyone has forgotten how to snipe away about other riders sandbagging and cutting courses. What has become of the internet?
