Behind The Bikeshed's Summer Circuits 1 ( Cat 3/4) 14 May 2013
A break went on the first lap with one of my Army team mates in it, so I did not chase, but soon the field was splintered to bits and I found myself working in a group of 4 for the majority of the race. We were behind the three man break-away, and never looked likely to close it down. My frozen legs disappointed in the sprint and I walked away with 7th place and 3 BC points to add to my collection.

I had an interesting race, which included a bit of cyclo-cross as I was pushed off the road when looking to take a corner wide. I managed to control the bike, but moved from the front of the peleton to the rear within a matter of seconds. The next lap was a concerted effort to get back to the front, which I did promptly, albeit with spit and sweat flying all over the place as I munched my handlebars.
There were plenty of attacks, and in the end three riders managed to get away. They built up a 28 second lead by the end of the race. In the bunch gallop I found myself out of position and got boxed in. Just as I thought it was all over a gap opened in front of me and I managed to pass four or five riders to finish 11th in the race.
