....Trip out to St Andrews was under the whip of Nicko, barking out orders. It's good to be boss positioning yourself at the rear, letting others do the work.
You know the rest. ( dirty dog ) Just so the legs were good for the sprint.
Future sprint order is, Nico lead out 2 km's from the sprint end point....

In an attempt to bridge the gap to the leading riders, Nicko once again decided to shortcut the roundabout by going onto the wrong side of the road. Eagle-eyed readers will remember my post from a few weeks ago as to the habitual nature of this move. However in this case what Nicko didn't realise was that Peter was to his right and alongside him!
Displaying skills that would have made the riders on the Strade Bianche mudfest proud from Giro d'Italia's stage 7, Peter somehow managed to keep upright after locking up and sliding out the rear to avoid the imminent collision with Nicko! Understandably, words were exchanged and a sheepish Nicko rode in a little after the main group arrived at Rocket.
Well done to all for braving the cold and to Nicko, no more shortcuts OK
