Rhino Road Race

On Sunday I made the short trip to Middleton for the Rhino 2/3/4 Road Race. 6 1/4 laps of a 9 mile circuit around Great Eastern and including the Devil’s Staircase made it a tough race. The weather wasn’t fantastic but was bearable after Scotland! After a failed attack on the first lap, James Moore attacked again and went away with 4 riders who we never saw again. Later in the race another team mate, Jonny Unwin, attacked and managed to bridge across with 3 other riders making the breakaway a total of 9 riders. With James and Jonny in the break I was unable to chase myself and so stayed in the main bunch. I managed to get to the front of the main brunch sprint earning myself 12th place.

I was very pleased to get more points on the board following last weekends disappointment. Congratulations to James and Jonny who came 3rd and 9th respectively.
