Salt Ayre evening race - Matty Dobbing reporting:
I attacked first lap staying away for a bit, but it then came back and a counter attack went where a rider quickly gaped us. I bridged across staying out for 25 minutes riding pretty hard but he was fading meaning I ended up pulling longer turns. Unfortunately, it came back for a sprint, I was confident in being able to win from the 2 up but after the big effort I was less confident in the sprint. I attacked with about 300 meters to go almost holding off for the win but picking up 3rd. Quite happy with the result and my legs were okay after coming down at 60 km/h at Beaumont only a few days earlier. So I was pretty happy with 3rd but was gutted I missed out on the win.
