Completed this race a week ago on 14th June on a tough circuit of 43 miles. The weather on that day was glorious but the road surface in the middle part of the race on the quiet roads was pretty terrible. The race started outside Str'aven with few miles being neutralised, a few breaks started to appear at the front of the race but they didn't last long. Once the first climb came the pack of riders split all over the hill but I managed to jump onto the lead bunch and stayed with them on the whole route. A few scary moments going down some off the single track farm roads as there was gravel on some of the corners and some corners were tighter than realised. At one point was off the back of the bunch by 5 yards but just chased down again, last 15 miles to go till finish on a farm road lost the bunch again but this time had to chase down 15 yards.
Going to the finish, speed was up at 30mph making it tough just to hang onto the back of the bunch but managed to finish in the bunch with possible top 20 position.
