In June I spent 10 days training in the French Alps, near Mont Blanc. This was an excellent opportunity given to me by Artillery Cycling, and I felt the benefit immediately upon my return, when I placed 3rd in a 3/4 Cat race at Ludgershall. That gave me enough points to move up to 2nd Cat.
I then did the Colin Carfield Road Race in Somerset, but found myself having a bit of a disappointing day. It was a tough route, with several climbs at 14% for over 4 minutes each. I was soon off the back, and packed it in about half way through the race.
I also raced in the Oakley Village Road Race on the 6th of July, where I felt strong, but fluffed the final kilometres and finished 20th in the sprint.
Still I have been chipping away at points at the Ludgershall crits, and today I placed 7th at a tough Inter Corps Race at Thruxton Circuit.
