Surrey League RR

Surrey league RR- Barcombe circuit - 8th September - @Joe West reporting:

Myself and Peter Merritt made our way to Lewes on Sunday for a Surrey Cycle Racing League RR hosted by Sussex Revolution VC, a 100k RR on a rolling course with a sharp little climb up to the finish.

It started quick with attacks and I was determined to get a break going, attacking every lap and keeping the pressure high. Annoyingly on the 4th lap, my attack got countered and the break was established.

I kept pushing along with Peter, making sure no one else got anyway. Coming into the last lap, we could see the break 20 seconds ahead, but no one was committed to closing the gap and it came down to a bunch sprint.

We were both positioned well coming into the foot of the climb, but as soon as the sprint opened up, frustratingly, Peter got cut up. I managed to dodge it and get 3rd in the bunch and come home 11th, meanwhile Peter came in a respective 20th.

Thanks to all the organisers and sponsors who make these races possible.
