Second round of the midweek league was a 22mile APR
Few more starters this time
Got handicapped with about 10mins over the first group and stuck with Euan whos just a wee bit (alot) quicker than me.
Again shouldnt have been riding because of exams but you need to relax dont you
first group went , 6 mins later second group went 2mins later next group went , 2 mins after that the next group went , then me and Euan went
Got up to the first climb ....bye bye Euan , just couldnt stay on his wheel. Legs felt a bit numb as well like there was no power , i usually excell on the climbing its where i usually do the dropping !
did the rest of the race on my own , caught about 4 people from the first 2 groups. No one in the groups was powerful enough to work with to regain places , all the fast boys were working together up front.
So i just settled down in the end and took 7th

next round is a 5 lap MTB race in glamis station woods , hopefully i can hold my winter form in there ! ....notthings certain though. I appear to have damaged my bicep in this race , its really painful to load. Ill give it some rest and ice and see what happens with it , hopefully its just a minor strain , fyrish next weekend !
