Dylan takes third at Chevin Road Race Series

    This Tuesday was the last of the Chevin Road Race Series and another chance of getting that much desired win on the new Brownlee Circuit in Leeds.

    As usual, I started in the scratch group near 2mins down on the front runners designating the first half of the race as a fast chase to get in the race. Once we caught group 1, a number of different riders put efforts in to get off the front with a few looking promising. The best thing I could do to hopefully put me up there at the finish would be to cover every attack to get in the move that would inevitably get a gap.

    With maybe two thirds of the race gone, myself and about 7 other riders got away just as the heavens opened. Once away, a couple of us worked well to increase the gap to a time that would leave us comfortable for the finish. The last few laps was real cat and mouse stuff with some, including myself, trying to gap the break for a solo victory. However, it all came together for a sprint which I placed third in putting me on the podium but unfortunately not the top step.

    Hopefully I’ll climb a bit further up that podium come Sunday where I’ll be racing the Peter Taylor Memorial RR on a lumpy, hard-going circuit.
