The flurry if snow persisted on n off thought the events. It was time to start my turbo session at 1.30pm I could see Joe Atkins n Andrew Tamplin warming up near me with the snow coming down at the back of the car I got on with it using increased intervals set to me by the coach, leaving it as late as possible I then headed to the start area going for long bibs rather that kit shorts just too cold today.
I got gridded third next to Steve Knight , after 30sec wait after the seniors had gone we were off, I led the field for the first lap making quite an indent , then Steve passed me just before line, on the first the I just had to sit behind him as we started passing the seniors, the long steep decent on the second lap bumped my QR undone which knocked my brakes out but after stopping n fixing left a gap between us I then tried to make up. Thanks to Andrews wife I swapped bikes as brake was rubbing .
On the last lap of 7 a few of the seniors started to lag so I saw this as an
Opertunity to put the hammer down so I soon started passing a few seniors and with a sprint to the line taking three out and finishing .
