Hillingdon GP- part of the Womens National Series, First National road race this season, I rolled in 17th after a hard race of trying to bridge the gap to the break and attacks of my own. It was on the hottest day of the summer and everyone was knackered.
Junior National 10, 4th Junior Girl overall on what was a very horrible wet and windy day. A disapointing ride for me but not too shabby after illness.
Im just getting over another cold at the moment and then I can get back on my bike, this season has just been terrible so far, I have been ill quite alot and stressed because of exams. Im really glad however that my exams are almost over! Im looking forward to the Junior tour of assen and the GHS National 10 mile TT so hopefully I can get up to scratch for them fitness wise. Im really excited about my first residential Jaguar acadamy of sport workshop weekend which is coming up soon as well. There are also exciting prospects for the coming Cyclo-cross season! Bring on the summer + then the mud!
Im trying to post more often on here but I am forgetful! Will Keep you posted.
Going to see if the winter training with fellow cyclist Charlotte Broughton has payed off…
Just a quick post as I have been neglecting my blog recently.
Really excited about racing at Milton Keynes Bowl Tomorrow! It’s a womens only race which i am looking forward to. It just feels that I haven’t raced in ages and I can’t wait to go fast on my bike again.
Hopefully can get some Pictures up in the next week of the race
Sorry I havent posted in a while!
Yesterday my dad and I made the trek up to Birmingham in the snow to attend the BC Dinner. On the night I collected my award for winning the National Youth Circuit Race, we had a lovely meal, it was nice to see lots of familiar faces and catch up on how everything has been going.
I can’t wait for the racing season to kick off again, it’s going to be a great year in cycling!
During the half term me and fellow Blogger Bella Biker went up on the local mountain bike trails in Fineshade woods, Kings Cliffe. This time we took out our dusty mountain bikes out as the weather had been far from brilliant. Amanda and I managed to convince a few other die-hard cyclists out in the rain so it ended up as a massive group affair, with Kings cliffe Flyers out in force. We did just one lap of the red route and stopped at the cafe. The woman wasn’t too impressed with all mud and made us sit on bits of cardboard but I think she was glad for the customers. Luckily I managed not to come off in the wet but some of the other riders came back with faces and bums covered in big clumps of mud. It was nice just to get out and do something different from turbo. staring at a wall for an hour isn’t something I enjoy.
Can’t wait until the summer!
I came second on boxing day in the Imperial winter series Womens race at Hillingdon. It was a really windy day and even though there weren’t many women it was a hard race. Lots of attacks went and then came back again.In the end it came down to a tight sprint finish. I am now second in the series by one point to Kimberly English going into the next round. Its going to be a very exciting race!
I just got back from the Welsh National Velodrome in Newport. I was lucky enough to get invited by ODP ( the Olympic Development Programme) as a guest rider in the Development World Cup. I really enjoyed the racing but it was a hard four days riding to and from the Velodrome every day and racing with the country’s top track riders, both Youth and Juniors. I didn’t do as well as I would have liked but I took a lot from it. Hoping to take some track speed into the National CX Championships in January.
Report and Photographs now on the British Cycling Website from National Trophy Round 3 in Southampton.
I came fifth in the womens race which is my highest ever placing in this category at a national level. I was pleased with my ride but hopefully there is room for improvement.
