WMCCL Round 4

Race report from supported rider Daniel Barnes

Round 4 of the WMCCL league was held at Shrewsbury and they used previous years national course but in the reverse direction which was a very flowing course and had lots of sections which worked really well in this direction.  It was bone dry and I got a good start in a lead group with Toby and another junior, then he slipped and allowed Toby to get away so I didn’t chase him down and decided to sit on the other riders wheel.  Then I went past him through a technical section and he crashed and had to put his chain back on giving me about 20 seconds and then I attacked hard and continued to pull the gap out until the finish.  Coming 2nd senior and 1st junior gives me great confidence for Derby national trophy this weekend.
