I did? I don't remember anyone ever paying me for the privilege.

I dunno. Is there another "recreational" category crit coming up? I seem to be recovered from the
Fleche Pacifique now, and I made pretty good time coming up to SFU today.
The Fleche (sorry, too lazy to make proper accents) was fun in retrospect, but probably the most
miserable ride I've been on to date -- solid rain for the first five hours, with the temperature
around 4 degrees centigrade. I'd done barely any training before the ride, so I completely wore
myself out, and started bonking after 360 km, and for a while I thought someone was going to have to
come pick me up and drive me the remaining 20 km.
