|Stourport Sports Club
Conditions were warmer than previous weeks & the wind was gale force!
12.20 - Youth A Boys - 30 mins + 5 Laps
Jack Fothergill & Jacob Jones represented Solihull in the U16 Boys Race
Jacob Finished 18th
Jack unfortunately DNF
Keep at it Lads!
13.00 - Cat E/1/2/3 - 50mins + 5 Laps
This was Stuart Jamesons First race of the season & as a Cat 2 Racer
A reduced field meant points were guaranteed
Stuart finshed 8th & scored 2 points
Good considering the quality of the field & the start being delayed by over 20 mins! - This is why I prefer Time Trials
14.10 - Cat 3/4 - 40 Mins + 5 Laps
In my race the racing was very aggressive from the start, more so than the previous weeks.
This nature combined with the wind meant that the race splintered very quickly, after 10 mins a lead group was formed!
13 there was - I knew this was not in my favour
So at exactly 20 mins I attacked & created a 5 second gap - the problem was I'd put so much power down 3 came past me & I couldn't hold their wheel!
They got away & 7 were left as the second group on the road.
I couldn't repeat my Long Range sprint from last week & I finished in 10th place.
I think overall I'm happy with performances over the series 9th, 11th, 3rd, 10th
Bring on the SpoCo Season!
