Fallen Leaves National B Scottish Stage Race Day 1: KOM jersey on my shoulders.
Stage one was a prologue in which I was immediately disadvantaged with the absence of a TT bike or clip on tri bars finishing 30 seconds down on GC.
Stage 2 was a 90km road race in which I managed to initialise a breakaway with 6 others 30km in after a climb. At the KOM points on the course I placed second in each prime. As the winner of each prime was different each time, this put me in the lead of the King of Mountains competition. This breakaway group eventually dwindled to 3 riders and was caught at the bottom of the finishing climb only 2km from the finish. Gutted. However, I hung onto 8th place on the stage, with team mates Daniel Nieto 9th and Hamish Carrick keeping his powder dry and finishing safely in the bunch.
Thanks to my team mates and the sponsors;
