LVRC Dragon 2 Day

I haven’t blogged about this race as it all ended so badly for 5 people. Now I have had a week I have thought about it so a quick report.

Stage 1 was a TT – 3.5 miles up a rolling course – Went hard and went deep and some 40 seconds faster than last year. This years bike is excellent.

Stage 2 was in the afternoon – 48 miles up the TT course and down the R25/3 about 9 miles per loop. Due to a mistake with the time keeping I was announced as one of the fastest TTers and it showed as I was marked early on. Result was a hard day in the saddle doing loads and not really getting anywhere. Solid if unspectacular.

Day 2 – pre race briefing saw us get our arses spanked for poor road behaviour and this was ringing in our minds as we rode.

Day 2 and the final stag – 60 miles – Sometimes you know that it is just about hanging in and other days it is about racing. Today I was ready to race but my inability to jump away meant I became a spoiler often chasing down the breakaway. 2 did get away but it did not stick as with all the attacks in the peloton we caught them on the last lap. Building up for the big finish we see a police vehicle and we were stopped 1 mile from the finish. First thoughts were we had been followed and broken more rules but it turned out the older age group had been involved in a crash where 5 riders went down, the road was closed and the air ambulance was called. It was a sad way to finish but most people were just concerned about the crash victims

Talking about it now because we have heard that everyone will recover just fine even the air ambulance man.

Where do I sign up again for next year ?
