I did my first road race this past week. My goal was to finish with the main group and I accomplished my and finished 16. After last week’s crit, I decided to be MORE aggressive and be at the front. But I did learn from this race was that you don't want to be leading the group because when it comes down to the sprint you better be ready. Well I put to much effort at being in the front of the group and didn't have anything left for the sprint. Next race is this weekend, I am going to try to sit in the pack and wait until the end to sprint for the finish. It appears that I feel more comfortable in Road races vs Crits but I think I will become more comfortable with more races.
