Sol in the bunch at Brentor

4th place at Brentor

posted in: Races, Solyo | 0

I played a more tactical race at the Tavistock Brentor RR on Sunday when an early attack stayed out front for a lot of the race but I maintained my position in the bunch. I missed the winning two man break but I went with a chasing 3 man break, trying to close the 1 minute gap to the two leaders.

Unfortunately one of the riders in my group wouldn’t contribute to the work as he had a team mate up ahead, and after doing a lot of the work to close the gap by 30 seconds it was too late to make the catch. The team rider who had been sitting in out sprinted me at the finish but I came across the line in 4th place which I was pleased with under the circumstances.
