Round 1 and 2 of Severn Valley at English Bicknor.
Day 1 was tough due to not getting the starts, but I powered through to get 5-5-5, so 4th overall on the day
Day 2 Race 1 – I had a horrendous start and got caught in a pileup on the first lap. Fought hard and finished 8th. Race 2 – another awful start of Race 2. Had a crash and managed to get back to 7th. The last race was by far the best. The start was good and although I made a couple of mistakes, and my handlebars came loose on the last lap, I managed to pull back to 3rd.
Finished 4th overall on the weekend
What’s helping from Coach Robb:
- Keeping consistent lap times and not over stretching myself at the start of the race
- Keeping well hydrated and eating (lots!)
- I overtook some of the other riders towards the back end of the race- just goes to show my fitness is holding up well
- Coming in from the race and having some quiet time to think things through (without Dad giving me advice straight away )
