Fourth guy back in the bunch looks like he's about to deck it - maybe that helped? Still, solo win! :up:


Managed to hold on for the win in our club's Crit Championships. Even with my 'aero' sprinting position... :roll: :doh: had 0.021s to spare - plenty of time :shock:

Did come at the end of 2 man break for final third of the race - love a good break away :twisted:

The spoils.

Oh so that's what the finish looked like. I was too busy groveling back in the bunch half a lap behind you! :)

temperature was oke, 3 to 4°c, but lots of cold seawater made it hard. I (and 3/4th of the competitors) use schwalbe supermoto's on my 29'er!

My first race today. I rode like a total pillock and attacked over and over again, as well as dragging along the field a lot of the way round. The nerves really get to me and any tactics or plan just seem to go out the window. I am not the cool, calm, collected type. :roll: I cooked myself and just sat up while everyone sprinted past me.

Still, I had great fun despite it being extremely cold and windy. Here are a few photos of me off the front:

I am aware that I am flipping off the camera, borrowed bike = odd control setup.

Actually expected to see you being kissed by THAT Aussie podium girl in that spoils link, Tinea. Hope the coffee was tasty, and congratulations!

It's at Castle Combe - really nice venue actually, but the wind can be brutal on such an open circuit.
