2022 Carl Dolan Spring Classic - Cat5, 2nd place! (Full race, gnarly 1st lap crash, no commentary)

Hey, all.

I make videos of my races and other cycling things for fun. If anyone enjoys these things, take a peek! :slightly_smiling_face:

This was yesterday’s race, my 4th road race ever (2nd circuit race), and I somehow managed to get 2nd! (Thanks, TrainerRoad!) The guy who won has an FTP of 380+ @ 160# and I knew for sure he would win lol :joy:

The commentary version of this will come out in a few days when I get it done. Can’t edit videos during the day with 4 little ones under 7yo :sweat_smile:

Hope you enjoy!


Nice video. General question from a non-racer, but how does someone with a 380 FTP race CAT5? I guess I could see if the rider was completely new to racing, but that guy looked like he knew what he was doing.

Yup it was his first road race. Everyone starts in Cat5 (now called Novice). He is a former D1 rower and does a LOT of fast group riding in our Northern VA area. Really cool dude too and he is young, so he has that going for him too.

Oh, and thanks! I try to make good videos for the sake of it being fun.
