After round 1’s brutal course and season open I felt like the pressure was off today starting 32nd on the grid only just making the seeding as the cut of was 35th.
I had a great start to the race staying out of trouble and managing to get through the first few narrow sections avoiding any major build ups.
With the first few laps I found myself in a group of four riders Craig Hay, James Bracy, Allan Collins Which I manged to stay with for the entire race all doing our bit on the front with a few close calls on the overtaking department.
3 laps from the end the group of four turned into three with Craig Hoy dropping off the back which left myself & James Bracey & Allen Collins Battling it out.
With two laps to go myself & James Bracey Got tangled up together allowing .Allen Collins To get away.
Final lap I closed the gap on James Bracey And managed to get into a sprint for finish which was a close call but I think managed it.. ( See video) managed to finish 23rd
Overall an excellent day and Venue moving on to next week at Abingdon in Oxfordshire.
Once again thanks to Paul at Sarum Velo for the support.
