Coalville Wheelers Road Race

Yesterday I took part in the Coalville Wheelers Road Race on what felt like the windiest day of the year. I was pretty tired after a long week but was still looking forward to the race. The race was over 9 laps and featured a long straight road which had a strong head wind all the way along. There were several attacks and eventually 2 riders which included Joe Clark got away after 10 miles. I tried to get into several moves to get across but unfortunately didn’t make it. Ultimately I finished in the third group which meant I placed around 30th. It was a hard race and my legs definitely felt it later but I was pleased with my performance and feel that I am improving.
