This Monday passed I raced in Brighton at the Apre's Bank Holiday Bonanza, in a National B E12 race around the track in Brighton's Preston Park. Only 12 riders started, so I knew it was going to be particularly tough as there would be no bunch to hide in. Sure enough, our average speed for the race was 45,9 km/h and I only managed 8th place, although that still gave me 8 points for my Cat 2 ranking.
My wife, Sarah, was able to get some great shots, which you can see below.
The next three weeks will see me doing the Army Road Race Championship, the Inter-Services Road Race Championship and the Inter-Corps Road race Championship. My training for the next week will be severely hampered by work, so I'm going to have to rely on race smarts more than legs probably.
