Culloden APR

Postby malcolm » Sun Apr 25, 2010 7:30 pm

Managed to get round another APR this afternoon at Culloden. Had a goodworking group including Marco and Ewan Murray.

Everyone stayed together, despite some riders putting in massive turns of speed that only stretched the group instead of keeping the speed steady and fluent. A quick look at the pro races will show seamless work between riders with no huge increases in speed and the guys who do that in our local races should go down a group and ride with faster guys to develop instead of floating around slower groups.

The group was fine until the second last time up the climb when the scratch groups came into sight. Charles Fletcher (Cairngorm junior who crashed at Alford last August), jumped away with Marco. I had led up the climb the previous 3 laps with Marco also putting in a spell, but this time my legs were goosed and I rode tempo to the top. The 4th group caught our group and the stragglers from the first few groups and I had no chance of jumping on after the fast descent. Not sure what happened next but Ewan, a guy from Moray Firth and Charles were all out with Ewan flatting, not sure about Charles or the other guy. Marco was climbing well so he might have been able to hang in with the scratch guys on the last time up although Tony Hay and a few others were bombing.

I rode to the finish, of course a bunch finish would have been better but I climbed better than I have for a few years and put in my share of the work in our group so its another step along this long road!!
