>Hillingdon, Tuesday, Race #n

>After a couple of weeks away I returned to Hillingdon on Tuesday for the fourth category race. It had rained earlier in the day, so only about 13 riders lined up for the start. I was feeling rough and in an extremely negative frame of mind. Sure enough, after 5 miles I was shelled out and DNF’ed at the end of the lap. It was a shaming performance.

Team mate Tom did well in 7th place, though he reckons a bit more savvy could have moved him up the order. Nothing ventured, nothing gained, Tom.

I could have made some sort of amends by getting a decent training run in yesterday (Wednesday) but that didn’t happen either. I seem to be on a real mid-season dip. This is not good with my target ’50’ only ten days away.
