Full Gas Summer Circuit Series 2/3 - 24th July - Peter Merritt reporting:
I made the trip to Lee Valley to compete in the 13th round of the Full Gas Summer Circuit Series. A break of three riders got away early on. I didn't go with them initially, but after a few laps they had accrued a convincing lead. I didn't trust the bunch to work together well enough to bring the breakaway back, so I attacked off the front and bridged across to the front group with the help of one other rider who went with me. Once we made it to the breakaway, the five of us worked well together and continued to push the gap out. There were a couple of attempts from riders to attack off the front of the breakaway in the final two laps, but they didn't succeed. We came into the finishing straight and I started my sprint early. In spite of my best effort, I was overtaken by one rider just before the line, and I finished 2nd place.
