North east divs champs - 2nd June - Matty Dobbing reporting:
The race started off quite slow given we had 92 miles to go, however this was followed by the favourite clipping his pedal and coming off around a corner. This straight away started the attacks off! I didn't go with the first group, then a bridging effort went across which I couldn't follow. I then spent the next 45 miles with a chasing group to get across. We finally made the junction where some riders had sat on and then attacked, at this point 3 riders were already up the road then another 3 bridged. I tried to bridge solo but only lasting one lap (12 miles) before being caught and finishing 4th in the bunch kick and 10th overall. I'm not that happy with the end result as I knew I could do more if my legs were there. It was good to get some racing miles in my legs for Lancaster GP this weekend, onwards and upwards!
