Commute:

D: 5.5km
A: 40m

HCC Crit:
After the race briefing, where instructions on how the end of c-grade might pan out depending on if we had a break, there was joking discussion that we should just agree not to have a break today.

Obviously this meant the racing that followed was ferocious, as people tried to establish a break.

I had planned to hide all race, so that I could see the very end for a change, but ended up off the front a few times. It was a matter of letting race instinct take over, and it dictated that you go with the rider in front when they attack, especially if they give countless signs they're about to.

Even when the break got out of sight, the pace continued in the bunch. It made me surprised the break stayed up the road, because to match, or even exceed our pace would have taken a lot of effort.

As for me, I dumped my legs on the last lap to put Luke Aggat into the final corner at the front, and then peeled off to hyper-ventilate.
