I won my first race today!
I have always been nervous about road racing but today I raced at Castle Combe in the Cat 4's and being only my second ever road race I thought if I could come away with a few points I would be really chuffed.
For the whole race I stayed in the 10 ten, helped chase down attacks, even tried a break with other riders! Coming into the last corner I was in a good position in 5th and a small gap opened when every on started moving right and I just launched a massive attack from about 350/ 400 yards out. Thankfully I managed to hold everyone off and won by about 10 bike lengths. I have never won anything in bike racing before and it is such a good feeling. Very happy at the moment.
No point to this thread other than wanting to share!
