- My first ever road race… any tips?
As others: stay near the front, try and stay ‘loose’ on the bike, as in don’t tense up as you’ll be less able to take evasive action if anything happens. Look out for any dodgy riders (people bouncing up and down on the seat/generally riding oddly), stay away from them.
It’s only short, but it will be fast. Try and drink when you can. And by all means attack!
You’ll have a blast, enjoy.Posted 5 years ago
You’re not going to believe it, but I won!
I literally followed advice above, kept in the top few, stayed out of the wind and went all out in the last lap.
Totally amazed! It was brilliant.
Thanks so much for the tips: They really made sense, especially the bit about staying near the front… I dopped back after 25 minutes for a few laps and it was way sketchy riding in a bunched group so I bust a gut to get back into the top 8, which was much more controlled.
Hooked now, so will try another one soon. Am now on a mission to get my 3rd Cat.Posted 5 years ago
