This cat 2/3/4 women's race was put on by CC London. Having done race training with RCC in the morning I decided to stay on for the race. I did this race on bank holiday Monday and knew it was a good one with a lap up the hill every 12-15 minutes to shake things up.
With a field of 11 women the race started off at a slow pace so to up the pace I immediately started attacking. After the first lap on the hill, six of us managed to break away from the rest of the group and started working together. Debra Kelsall and I did most of the work on the front to keep the pace up while trying not to burn out my legs completely. As there were only 6 of us in the front I knew there was going to be a sprint finish after all!
My legs were feeling good with one lap left so I moved back to the front to up the pace a bit more and sprint to the finish. I finished first followed by Dagmar Pfeiffer and Debra Kendall
All in all it was a fun race with a great field!
