Lee Valley Velo Park - 10th July - Alex Ashman reporting:
On Wednesday night I headed up to Lee Valley for a mid week Crit. The field was around 40 men strong which meant the circuit felt very narrow!
I raced aggressively, constantly pushing to get up the road. Due to the size of the bunch and how easy it was to sit in the wheels, it was a race that would stay together from start to the finish. On the last lap I moved back from 6th wheel to around 12th to try to get the jump on the peloton for an attack. As I launched I heard the crash before I saw it. I was hit by a loose wheel and ended up on the grass. After negotiating my way around the crash, I crossed the line in 15th place, gutted seen as I was feeling strong all race.
