Surrey league Handicap Race Thursday 4th June 2009
Second time I have done this and I have enjoyed it hugely each time. The Kitsmead Lane road circuit is a short ride from home and the handicap format leaves a great deal more scope for tactical thinking and especially cooperative riding. Today the last group off started more than a lap behind the first (which naturally included me), who rather unwisely tried to latch on. It could not, and did not, last. I was caught by the second group off (3rd cats?) but we stayed away from the later groups so I am hoping for another top 20 placing.
