It seems like all that hard work is paying off. Last year was my first year as a giant fatty riding a bike, race 5 times(excluding the TT's) for the experience and it was a steep learning curve!!!
Did my first race Cat 4 only on a closed circuit - mountbatten today. Raced realy aggressively but it still finished in a sprint. Crashed making a run at the win and slid accross the line on my face but still took fourth although it could have been better. Very happy as it shows all that agony on the turbo and the hours and hours out in the [****] weather is paying off. Qould have been a place or two higher without the ding but heh thats racing!
Id give you bits of both knees and elbows plus all the skin off my other buttock and a saddle and some bar tape for another 6 points next time, so im still upbeat! Even better our whole team were attacking one after the next and my oppo took 1st! Roll on the next one.
