Round 7 / Imperial Winter Series / Hillingdon.

My main aim for this race was to ATTACK and DISRUPT.

Of course I wanted a good result if possible but after a lot of group riding in the last races I thought it was time to shake it up and see what would happen, so after just a couple of laps I fired off the front.

I kept the pace high and had a quarter of a lap gap after 2 laps or so, until I was finally joined by 4 others, including fellow TCC, Tim.

However, we just failed to work together as a breakaway. Lack of communication and experience was the culprit so next time the group will have a leader.

A few more failed breaks later on and it was time for the sprint. I was 3rd coming around Brian’s Bends but my legs had had it from the earlier efforts and I was happy to sit up and coast in with the bunch.

This was my favourite race so far.
