Greetings from over t'other side of the Pennines! Hope everyone is keeping well! Just thought I'd give you a few updates of what I've been up to. After the track leagues finished for the year in April I've been concentrating on the road for a bit, doing plenty of circuit races and the odd road race, including the British Universities Road race championships (which the elite riders made sure hurt...a lot). I've been making a fair bit of progress with my performances in the circuit races and criteriums. Exams put stop to my training for a bit but I'm getting back on it this week with the new Tameside crit series in Ashton.
Had a great day out yesterday at the British Universities Track Nationals down at the outdoor track at Halesowen racing against a pretty tough field. The day was dominated by the professionals and elites but was good experiences and brilliant to get the legs spinning again!
Ian and Robin will be pleased to know I've mastered the art of the puncture repair now and apparently my speedy repairs were enough to merit employment by the Edinburgh Bicycle Co-operative store in Manchester so I'll be working there most of the summer. I hope to be back for the Imps Road Race (hopefully for a race, if not then join the chaps on a ride). See you soon!
