On Sunday it was the EMRRL Dringy’s Road Race being held in Edmoundthorpe, Rutland, Leicestershire. It was to be held on the Wymondham Circuit which was one I had never ridden before.
Starting in Edmounthorpe outside the HQ, we set off at 10. The race was to be around 53 miles which was to be 5 laps after arriving at the start line from the HQ.
A break was established very early on, and and was able to get a lead of around 40 seconds which was held for most of the race. With the wind being strong once again riders were reluctant to take up a chase when heading into the head wind with attacking in smaller groups preferred which were all rode back quickly.
With a couple of riders managing to escape on the last lap just before the the bunch were sprinting for 7th place. Unfortunately I took up my sprint to early which I was made to pay for with riders coming past me before the line. Finishing in 17th place I will be taking it forward for next time.
