1 Mountbatten Circuits 24/03/13 on Mon 25 Mar 2013, 04:29

Plenty of good racing today.

The youth riders all did well in there respective races a 4th for Owen, 6th for Conner and another 3rd for young Freya in the girls race doubling the clubs National rankings tally Very Happy. Rob P and Karl both rode well in the U61/14 race.

As for us older riders; I came 4th in the 4th CAT with Tom G snapping his chain whilst leading the final lap. Tom Morris had a great 4th or 5th in the 3rd's and Charlie finished well in the pack after failing to establish his earlier breakaway.

I left before the end of the E/1/2 race but Andy C was going well at the time.

Andy C hung in there to get what he thinks might be 13th ish, depending on how many guys on +1 and +2 laps were ahead of him in the final charge for the line.

Well done to all! I will probably be joining you in the Easter circuits next Saturday Very Happy

British cycling has a Rob Bolwell of VC St Raphael in 4th, but on SouthBC they have me as 4th and Rob Bowell in 13th.

As I came round the final corner I really thought I had it, but totally lost my legs 20 m from the finish. In hindsight with that headwind I should of sat in until the final straight but I was afraid of getting boxed in and instead tried to go on the corner.

The guy who won was in a small break with me earlier in the race. The last lap he did completely on the front at 50 k, which was a fair pace considering the wind!

I hope I get my points for 4th.

looking at the photo and kits, and the clubs on the results, it looks like they just got my number mixed with a guy who came 13th in the preliminary results.

The results on Bournmouth Blog and SouthBC have a guy from Twickenham CC in 5th, who must be the fellow furthest right with TCC on his shoulder.

The guy who's got third is from CMI, who i think is half out of shot, and the guy from Blazing Saddles got 2nd. I can't see anyone from St Raphael in shot.

Pretty close though! To be honest, I'm just chuffed I got some points.

... and no doubt with the aerodynamic advantages of said cover I would have been a bike length clear Wink
