Cyclopark Summer Series Round 5 - 23rd May - Dave Williamsreporting:
On an almost perfect evening at Cyclopark, it meant for a good evenings racing with a healthy group of strong riders taking the start.
The race was pretty hectic from the gun, so I did my best to stay at the head of the race to cover any attacks and keep out of trouble from those who couldn’t hold their line on the tighter hairpin corners around the circuit.
With light winds and a big group of riders, it largely meant nothing was going to stick. There were repeated attacks throughout the race, mostly from the Thanet RC lads. I felt pretty good for the main part and with 3 laps to go I sat within the top 6 riders. Unfortunately in the sprint for the line no matter how ready I was for the big effort, my legs quite simply said NO so I helped young Leighton Dalley get into position. My race was over as I entered the home straight eventually finishing at the back of the main bunch. Although disappointed with the end result, I can certainly feel my strength and endurance is building.
