Last Saturday Mud, Sweat n Gears CC rider Charlie Cox did the first round of the sulis scorpions junior race series in Bath. Here is his report on the race.
There was around a field of 12 for the race so I thought it was a good chance to get some points. It started off relatively slow with a few solo attacks off the front. There was an intermediate sprint halfway through the race which I managed to get 2nd in, still not sure how many points there were for the sprint competition. After this I managed to spat out of the back off the group. 3 of us managed to work well together and got back on with one and a half laps to go. On the penultimate straight the group sat up and there was a gap that I attacked through. I managed to hold on until the last 50 metres where people got past, however I managed to hold onto 4th to get my first points of the season.
Well done Charlie, a great result so early in the year.
