Rich Anderson filed this report on his win (great job Rich!) in Leavenworth, KS:
The race took off, and about a half lap in i must have been feeling good since the race did not seem to be going super fast as in most crits at the start. A few laps in they call a prime, and about three riders are up the road, I chase them down and after we go thru the start/finish I notice that we have a decent gap for four rider. There is no cooperation and we are caught. This happens for every prime lap they call, we get a gap but no cooperation. About 10 laps to go the field splits up and we are chasing but a half lap later the leaders are sitting up and everything is back together. With about 5 laps to go I start to get a little excited, since I was feeling good and the race had not been too hard. I calm myself down and try to not do a lot of work.
As we are about to get the bell for one lap to go I start attacking the group. The course has a few rises but nothing too steep. As I go up the first rise i notice a shadow on my wheel, then we turn the corner and go up a slightly steeper rise. I go as hard as I can. I make it over and the rest is down hill and flat to the finish. I go around the second corner of the course and about half way down i look back. I am surprised I have a gap. I go around the last few corners and head to the finish I start to sprint since I did not want to be caught right at the line. I finish alone, not sure how far the group was behind.
