Another cold day with a wind; this time from the North giving a stiff headwind on the home straight. Around 30 on the start line. This time very stop/start pace with the speed sometimes reducing to that of a club run (with riders freewheeling down the straights!) but winding up greatly whenever I (or anyone else) tried to get away. This time a rider did come with me and urged me onto his wheel but I was incapable of maintaining his speed. (New Year's Resolution: I really must work on short efforts). The headwind led to a bunching on the final straight so with loads boxed in and shouting I simply follwed a wheel at the rear and probably came in 20-somethingth.
Average Speed 23mph.
