Race report Westpoint Jenny Corser Tuesday 2 August.
I’ve rapidly be learning the intricacies of racing and unfortunately the, rather high pitched, and public forum ‘ chatter’ that goes on behind it.
It’s pretty sad.
Anyway on a positive note I won this race.
It was a very small field, and the last of the Deliveroo , women’s series races.
I had cycled Ride London two days prior to this race in 4h20, at an average speed of 36.7km/h which I could still feel in my legs.
There was a strong head wind over the top section of the course, which made for a tough circuit, for tired legs.
Anyway I led the last lap from the head wind section.
Apparently someone watching bet £10 I wouldn’t win from so far out.
The club member watching with him didn’t want to take the bet because he also thought I couldn’t do it. But round the last corner I sprinted harder, I could feel the track sprinter next to me coming closer. And by the line it was very close – but I won.
Should have taken that bet…!
At least there were no crashes this time. Last time on this circuit the last bend saw a big crash.
Keeping it safe. Keeping it positive. Keep on smiling.
