Phoenix Inferno Crit Reg A - 17/08 - Peter Merritt reporting:
Alex Ashman myself lined up amongst a big field for Lee Valley's Phoenix Inferno Criterium. An early break of 2 got up the road and established a convincing gap ahead of the peloton. Alex and I worked especially hard to bring the move back, and shortly before the halfway point, the breakaway was brought back. Shortly after catching the early move, I attacked down the home straight and was followed by 2 others. After initiating the move, I worked hard within our trio to press our advantage over the peloton. Come the final laps, the gap had grown enough to be confident of the move's success. The race came down to a sprint between the three of us. I did what I could, but was beaten to the line by one and finished 2nd place.
