Sadly not. Royally outclassed and dropped.
Strangely it wasn't tough like I expected, it was the constant turning of the screw.
I had expected to suffer on the two climbs each lap, but I was more than fine on those.
There was a fast flat section were the group went single file every lap due to the pressure. I had a little incident there that caused a stall and the line just slipped away from me.
Too many elites and 1st cats showing what they can do, it was the nationals after all.
Time to re assess, train harder and loose weight and try and step up a notch or kick back and enjoy regionals.
Racing crits Tuesday and another road race Sunday, that's regional so I'll see how i do.
