Cyclopark Summer Series E/1/2 - 22/08 - Peter Merritt reporting:
Harry Horsman and I lined up for the penultimate round of the Cyclopark Summer Series. The race started as standard with plenty of early attacks. Not long into the race, I went off the front with two others and quickly established a gap of 20 seconds. We spent a few laps maintaining a slim advantage over the bunch, but as we approached the second half of the race, the gap began to increase. Back in the peloton, Harry kept a frontal position, chasing down counter moves that threatened to bridge. With a few laps to go, we had a considerable lead over the group behind. The race for the win came down to a sprint between the three of us. I gave it a go, but was just edged out by the other two, with not much more than a bike's length between first and third. Bottom step on the podium for me. After all his hard work, Harry went solo in pursuit of fourth place. Unfortunately, a puncture stopped him from securing this position. A disappointing end for him, but a great shoe of teamwork to ensure the break stayed away.
