Kalas Cup Stage Race - Sunday 5th May - Ryan Watkins reporting:
The opening prologue was just over 5 miles long on a reasonably flat course with a small climb. At the end of the prologue I ended up in 34th place with a time of 12:50, which was 10 seconds from top 20, but 1 minute 10 seconds from the leader, Marcin Biablocki.
The road stage was 80 miles long which went along the same route as the prologue course but just carried on through the prologue finish to complete a loop. There was 8 laps in total. I tried to get in an early move to try and gain some bonus seconds from the primes but unfortunately didn’t manage to as Nopinz where doing a lot of work on the front. In the last 3 laps, a group of 3 went up the road and managed to stay away. Finished in the bunch and ended up 28th on GC after a tough days racing.
