The Cliitheroe Grand Prix race is on a bugger of a circuit and saps you. This year’s race was on roads wet from torrential rain. I got into the leading group of six and we made good progress – but then I crashed on a slippy hairpin bend whilst attacking the leaders. (I was a few yards off the front so didn’t bring anyone down!) and fought a frustrating battle trying to get back on to the leaders for the remaining 20 minutes. I finished 20 seconds down in between the five leaders and the unorganised chasing group. Loved the fight though.

  • Wow, sounds like a fanstatsoic heroic battle you had Dave, well done! Makes my time trialing seem rather nancy-like!
