Thames Velo Hillingdon Crit Saturday 5th September

My club's turn at Hillingdon today so after a very inactive August I raced again. This week's crash was in the simultaneously run E/1/2/3 race and they were just picking themselves up as the 4th cat race came through. Had a few digs off the front but nothing lasted and the inevitable bunch sprint at the end is not for me. I finished in time to gawk in admiration at the two man leading break in the senior race containing my recent team mate, Harry Bulstrode, who chose our race to get the necessary points for Elite status. Tragically he punctured with 3 laps to go but still kept ahead of the chasing break of 5 to come in 2nd. One day I hope to emulate that with a break that works.
