LXV Trofeo Santa Mª Magdalena – Novelda

After travelling on Friday to Seville, and racing the Vuelta a Sevilla on Saturday and Sunday, then travelling back to Madrid on Sunday evening, we took the long drive on Monday to Novelda, near Alicante, for our next race the following day, the LXV Trofeo Santa Maria Magdalena Novelda.

 

The first part of the race was a frenzy of attacks at the front of the peloton, as riders persisted in trying to make a break stick. I got in a small break at 16km, but it came to nothing, then there was another group of riders who made the break, but before long they were brought back also.

 

Then at around 50km my team mate Alonso and myself established a 6 man break, and we caught a solo breakaway rider up ahead to form a strong 7 man breakaway. My legs were tired today from the two days racing at the Vuelta a Sevilla, but mentally I was up for it, and I thought that I would give it a go.

 

We worked together well in the break, and we were going full gas continually, at a speed of around 49km/h on the flat. We had a huge gap on the peloton, and we were out there in the break going flat-out for around 1 hour and 20 minutes, approximately 60km, when a small group of riders from the peloton bridged the gap to us, which destabilised our group, as they increased the pace, causing us to loose touch with them. At this point I just blew, and my legs went in an instant, and the 5 riders who had joined us continued to the finish line sprint for the win.

 

We didn’t make the win, but it was a great race, and my biggest break yet. You don’t know if you don’t try, and being in a big break with my team mate Alonso was an aggressive move for the team, where we headed the race for a long time.

 

There are no races for the next two weeks, so it’s back to training in preparation for more potential attacks.
