Surrey league RR - 18th August - Joe West reporting:
Peter Merritt and I made our way over to sussex for a Surrey league road race. The race had been shortened due to road works on the course, which by no means made it any easier so we were to complete 15 laps of a brutal course with very little rest bite each lap after the climb. As expected it was a quick start with attacks flying left and right and one rider getting away. After 5 laps we both found ourselves forming a chasing group with 7 other riders. With the group attacking each other as we got closer to the finish, I decided to make an attack up the climb with 2.5 laps to go. Making sure no one would follow, I quickly established a 30 second gap and held a good rhythm to come home solo with 2nd followed by Peter in 5th.
