Milton Keynes Bowl March Youth Criterium Series #1, 9 March 2019

I went into the race not expecting much as I wasn't sure of my form. I cruised from the start and sat in the peloton as expending energy at the beginning of the race would be pointless. I sat near the front for the first half to counter attacks and when they started cooling off I drifted back for the most energy saving. I went round the outside of the 2nd to last lap to gain a good place to start my sprint but I did this about 20 seconds too late and therefore I was just a bit behind that front bunch sprint row. I made do and snuck in all the gaps I could to finish 9th which give me great hope for a successful season to come.
