Imperial Winter Series Race 10 Saturday 30th January
had gone by and I found it safe to stop. A little run across Minet Park back to the finish hut where I swapped my rear wheel for a circuit spare and reentered the race. My aim was simply to finish comfortably in the bunch and I even started to move up in the penultimate lap before another major collision just ahead caused some sharp braking and loss of contact with the bunch. I sprinted after them but to no avail. I do hope those that came down are ok: hurts like hell for a while but at least it is slightly more heroic to come down in a race than on sheet ice.
Av Speed: I cannot say because of the puncture but the 3rd cats did not catch us this week. [Postscript 24.3mph, source Lance Woodman]
