Absolutely chuffed to bits to come away with an AG (V45-49) win today and a new PB of 22.03. Ok I only knocked 2 seconds off my previous time but a PB is a PB right?!
I’ve shied away from National events in the past mainly because I’ve come away feeling a bit deflated comparing myself to the fast girls so really happy to ‘only’ be 2mins off a really strong field of amazing ladies.
With the brilliant Liz Powell – Drag 2 Zero out of action after her leg surgery (get better soon Liz!), I knew who I had to beat but I never thought for a second that a 22min ride would do it. Turns out it was a tough day for everyone and I managed to sneak it by 2 seconds!! 😬
Jeez it was really tough out there though. With a head/cross wind on the way out, it took everything I had to keep my bike upright! I know that elusive 21 minutes is there, when the conditions are right.
HUGE thanks to Daniel Barnett for all of his support! So far this season I’ve done course PBs plus all time 10 and 25 PBs and now a National AG Medal. But we are not done yet are we Dan? Next up the final Midlands Women’s TT series races and a 50 miler.
I’ve never felt more ready or motivated to finish the year on a massive high!
