we had a solid group in the park with a lot of attacking
throughout the day. It came down to a group sprint and with 300m
to go while I was looking for my route through the field, Chris Louden
(VisitBrit) appeared in front of me. That was the ticket to
grab. He started up a bit late, at about 180m to go.
I was following and couldn't get out from my box-in along the curb
until both of us were clear of the main field at about 125m to
go. I spun up the 53x15 to 125-130rpm, got along side him but
out of road before the finish line. He stayed just in front,
beating me by 1/2 a bike
length. Next time, 53x14.
