2nd in E today - 1st, 5/6 or so and 2nd... guess that means I should probably go back up to D now!
Way fat and unfit at the moment... gut was even getting in the way in the drops!
Race only really got under way on the last lap, went from 35km/hr to 52 going around corner 2! Didn't know it, but elefunk who was just behind me in to corner 2 had a fall on that corner... didn't hear a thing! Just a couple of scrapes fortunately
On the back straight we came upon women's A or B, who were keeping all the way to the right... given that we're supposed to pass on the right, and had been specifically reminded of that the previous lap, I was reticent to pass but eventually had to as there was no way I could go right and they were only doing 30-odd. That dropped the pace back to 42.6 (according to my garmin... love looking at all the funky info!) though, and the eventual winner went around me... was in behind him in to corner 5, and in a good sort of position to sprint, but for some reason when I got out of the saddle to sprint, I got the wobbles. Not sure why, but whether positional or otherwise it probably comes down to not really having done any sprint practice lately. Had a couple of goes at it but couldn't get it right, and by then I'd dropped back 5 bike lengths or so, so just sat up and rolled in for 2nd...
