LMAO when I look at the photies :-) Well there is a price to pay when you keep sticking your nose upfront, yeah i was hurting no doubt about that but still the rises gave me a bit of time to recover. Just enjoyed it Jeff, it was hard work but only way for us 2 olle farts to keep improving :-)

Tnx for kicking my arse to go :-)

Spiza, finished mid field, not sure by how much the breakaway beat us but as we came around the last corner onto the straight it was clear the sprinters were going to kill the non sprinters. I stayed with the sprint for a while, picked a slower rider to wheel suck, couldn't get a new line as I was jammed in and saw BMXBandito sail across the line on the far right hand side infront of me. The most important bit was not to get dropped by the bunch and at a minimum Finnish in the bunch :-) These old bastards are fast no doubt about it. We went past B grade like they were standing still (well it felt like it anyway) they just don't muck about and its just so smooth to ride with them. To get really competitive v's poking a bit is going to need a whole lot more work !
