National Trophy round two, Astley Park, Chorley.

The second round of the British Cycling national trophy series was very local to me in Chorley, and I had another good ride. The course was nothing like I’d have expected there – it has the potential to be very muddy – but this time round, early in the season it was dry and very fast. Lewis Craven had a great ride to finish 9th (and had the fun of being escorted post-race for a drug test), but other than that, it was not a brilliant day for Wheelbase /Ron Hill – Stuart Reid was a bit below par and seemed tired and Rob Jebb snapped his chain and could have done with a bit more mud to suit his style.
