YORK SPORTS EVENING CRIT

Yorksport Crit - 2nd April - Max McMurdo reporting:

1hr long crit, still very early season but can't put off racing crits forever. Set off fairly fast and struggled to stay at the front, lots of attacking going on but everything seemed to be getting brought back. I knew I wouldn't have the gas at the end of the sprint to do anything so I knew I'd need to attack. I attacked around 30 mins in with two juniors but we didn't work well together almost immediately we were all missing turns, we inevitably got caught, and I just thought if I was fresh now would be the time to attack so I attacked straight after we got caught and there was a lull in the group and I had a good gap pretty quickly. I came round and the lap board had 10 laps to go and I just did my best to hold everyone else off. I got caught by a lad from wold top and couldn't sit on his wheel, another two came past me with a few laps left again didn't have it in me to stay with them, but held off the rest of the group to get 4th.
