there were 63 cyclists (so I was pretty close wasn't I 8) )
the British (or was is American) Team was what they call: "OUTSTANDING". 5 British or American riders in the top 6 :o ... I think we need some more training :P

I finished in the peloton, but I hadn't trained for 3weeks because of exams in school...

no team name was mentioned on the result list...
There were3 different outfits...
I talked to one rider who came from Liverpool... He had an orange shirt. There was also a yellow one, a white & red one and than you had a team with Specialized bikes and shirts with (major)blue, red & white.

It had links with .co.uk

Hi

yeah race went good for our team. we areon specialized s works tarmac sl's and blue,red and white kit. we are called Glendene CC. The guy that one though is british but doesnt ride for us neither does the riders placing 4th and 5th, although they too are both british. the first Glendene finisher was junior national 10 and 25 mile champion Andrew Griffiths in 6th with Toby Meadows second for the team, he crashed on the last corner though and snapped his frame :shock: .

my race didnt go so well. It was my first proper race in Belgium after crashing out early in Limburg. The first two laps i was a bit excited and attacked a lot. by the 4th or so lap a split happened in the bunch and i got stuck between the breakaway and the bunch in no mans land. i worked my way back upto the break but just couldnt latch on.

so i finished in the bunch also :?

hopefully will do better next attempt which will be later this month.

cheers Jay cee for the support. today i feel really annoyed i didnt make the break i was strong enough just did to much work early on. cant wait to go again. completely different from british racing in a good way, faster, tougher and more aggresive. next time in definetely going to make the break. The only thing that doesnt suite me is it all seems very flat whereas i would prefer a massive hill due to my strengths lying in climbing rather than flat speed. oh well roll on next time!

hi
i just took part in my second race. different race entirely from the first. this time i got stuck near the back of the bunch for the first 2 or 3 laps and couldnt find a way through. yet eventually i got the the front but the break had already gone! still i followed the wheels and finished in the middle.
im going out to belgium tommorow to stay out there for 10 days to get some serious racing in a hopefully a top 10.

the race was quick last time as it was completed in 2 hours (84km) but hopefully a few more races and ill find my feet.
