>A fast, even-paced race last night. I kept up without problems despite the lack of training. I stayed out of the last couple of laps rush as some of the riding was hopeful rather than skilful. I did one turn at the front but should have done more – I wasn’t really up for a lung-bursting effort for some reason.
