Ponteland GP national B - Sunday 5th May - David Reece reporting:
After a 180 mile drive up to Sunderland the night before, I was prepared for the race. The Sunday morning was really chilly start, heaters were on full blast in my car and I was kitted up ready to go. After a nice warm up to get warm, the race has a short roll out before the flag dropped. The course was really fast and frankly quite dangerous, with a few close calls In the few minutes with cars! It was a really fast start, but it didn’t last long for me, 7 miles in I punctured, but wasn’t to bothered as there was neutral service, but I looked behind and it was nowhere to be seen, obviously serving someone else. At this point, I knew my race was over. Time for nice drive home after some more bad luck. Onto next week another 500+ mile round trip to Bec cc road race! See you then.
