Took myfirst win of the Eastern Cross League for the season and hopefully I have started as I mean to go on.
Had a good start which took me up to 4th wheel going into the first bend. From here I wasn't really slowed down only lost ground to the faster vets.
Punctured with a lap and a half to go. But it wasn't a spectacular blow up, cruised back to the pit and collected by other bike but the pressures were off. Noticeably harder to control the bike riding at 45psi when I have been on 30psi front and 35 psi rear.
Thus lost a couple of places in those closing 8-10 minutes of the race. Just being gentle on the lap last through corners.
Note to self: prepare both bikes. I know this, but I won't forget every again.
I'd really like to ride to a top ten overall in the Vets/Womens race in the Eastern League.
Another good race and course. I do enjoy the league and how efficient they are with the results.
