Rocket RR Shrewsbury - 26th May - Ryan Watkins reporting:
On Sunday I raced the Rocket RR in Shrewsbury on a tough 11 mile course. The race was 6 laps so was roughly 66 miles in length with 2 short and sharp climbs. In the first 2 laps nothing was getting away, but the group stretched out on the climbs every time. On the third lap, I attacked solo and built a gap of roughly a minute within a lap. With 3 to go, I settled in to a rhythm hoping a small group would join me. Half a lap later I was joined by 2 others and we worked well together but unfortunately the bunch caught us just before the main climb. Then on the main climb a group of 10 got away, I tried to bridge several times but unfortunately wasn't able to get across, finishing in the main bunch.
