You can get a flat with any tire or tube. Some kinds of flats (e.g., from road hazards) are a little more likely with thin tires/tubes, but that kind of flat isn't common on a crit course. Anyway, road bikes rarely get flats in a way that causes an accident. We've all seen it happen (you try to make a hard turn on a tire that you don't realize is going flat, and you go down), but most of the time you realize you've punctured and you stop safely. So my answer would be it's not a big deal.
