Circuit Racing with Wayne Thomas

Veteran racer Wayne Thomas reports from Hillingdon circuit: "The
penultimate race of the Imperial RT Winter Series was blown to
smithereens before half way due to a combination of exceptionally strong
winds and some ferocious attacks from the Elite riders braking the race
into four groups plus stragglers. I turned up to do battle once more but
was caught out early on when six riders in front of me "popped" leaving
too big a gap to close on a headwind. As is allowed at this less than
one mile circuit, I rode an easy few laps, before rejoining what was
left of the peloton and was pleasantly surprised at the finish to find
that there were many more behind me. But it was "a very hard day at the
office". The final event takes place this Saturday with a post race
awards to the series winners. That concludes the winter season, then the
main road race season begins. "
