06 Jul National Road Championships
On Sunday I rode the National Road Champs for the first time in Northumberland, alongside 150 of the UK’s top pros including Team Sky… It was bloody mental. Well happy to survive 101 miles and the 22% slopes of Ryals to tell the tale. They pulled the bunch with a lap to go as the two groups up the road had a big lead that wasn’t coming back. Genuinely couldn’t have done it without the support of the DAP guys and my parents who were dishing out bottles at the feed station (had to push through some serious cramp at one stage, very nearly the end of me). A highlight was Cav giving me an earful for not pulling through in our group, can’t write what he said to me!
