Rider comments

The race started off well with one attack straight away, they got caught within a lap, then everyone was rolling for a lap with a steady speed, then someone attacked straight from the back through the pack. We all thought he wouldn’t last because he attacked five minutes in. We had him in sight for a while then we didn’t, he had a lead of 50 seconds. By then we knew we weren’t getting him back although some of us tried to chase after him but the pack would just chase us down and slow down afterwards. We were all racing for second now. With two laps to go there was a very strong attack which I got in but it got caught quickly, immediately a counter had happened and I had to get some energy back quickly to try to be a part of this one, we were dropping the bunch but someone didn’t work and then it slowed down, one lap to go and I’m second wheel, I see next to me there is a lead out happening so I hop on Christopher’s wheel, he got lead out by john, I heard him say “don’t die John, just a bit more” I was whispering the same hoping the pack wouldn’t swamp me. Good thing John put a great lead out to Chris until the finishing straight then he started sprinting, I managed to just get round him for second. Good race overall, bit of a laugh really.
