Today I raced in the lovely village of Scarrington, Nottinghamshire where it was the OVB Oktoberfest Road Race. It was held on a mostly flat 5 mile circuit, and was 9 1/2 Laps long, at a total distance of 53 miles.
With it being a windy day it was always going to be a race of riding of the front. Attempts were made by many throughout and eventually a group of 3 including Mike Cowland of Rhino Racing. Towards the end of the race another 4 riders managed to escape in 2 groups of 2. I was able to finish at the head of the bunch, sprinting to 8th place, making it a good day.
