GYCC Spring Road Race

Location: Fritton and St. Olaves, St Olaves, United Kingdom

This was a very fast and twitchy race that saw a few breaks make a few seconds gap before being reeled in, until mid-way through when Dougal Toms (Iceni Velo), Mark Richards (VC Baracchi) and someone else took off up the road and managed to stay away until the end. Dougal took the win, and Mark was second. The third rider had retreated to the bunch, allowing top Iceni Velo sprinter Spencer Laborde to nab third place.

I initially found the race quite exciting, keen to help drive at the front and even managing to break away for a few minutes with James Browne (VC Norwich). When a few riders crashed right in from of me and fellow Iceni rider Tim Guy, however, I felt rather more perturbed about the whole thing. I was happy to help my team-mates out on the run-in to the finish, but was more relieved just to cross the line without incident.
