CRRL – Newton Longville 2/3/4
Just a quick comment on this as it’s mainly a thank you to Stephen Campbell and Sol for their help in supporting this race. It was tagged on to the Masters weekend and seemed like a cracking idea at the time!
I decided before the race I was sitting in, legs were a little sore after Saturday. It was a pretty good race with lots of breaks, but none really sticking – a big break of 12 got away with just under a lap to go, how that didn’t go on is beyond me, I’d have been gutted!
Anyway, got to the drag before the sprint and was in a terrible position and never managed to get myself out of it, but thought, like yesterday, my legs would get me through those final 200m. They didn’t, they completely failed me – got out of the saddle to sprint, but managed 50m before sitting up – midfield, bunch finish for me.
Good practice to race back to back for the upcoming Ras de Cymru, but not my finest two hours in (or out) of the saddle.
