On Saturday I traveled down to the Lee Valley Velo Park again to race the latest round of the Full Gas Series. Leaving at 10:30 I arrived at 12:30 which gave plenty of time to sign on and get myself ready.
After getting ready, warming up and the briefing we got underway. With not much wind on the day it was going to be difficult to stay away and this proved to be the case throughout the race as breaks went and were rode back.
In the last 5 laps however a break did stick with three riders in and soon after another two riders bridged over. Although having the opportunity to attack and bridge over myself, I opted not to, as I thought the break would be caught on the last lap. This proved to be the case when we arrived onto the final straight where it was then a 100-200m sprint to the finish. Positioning myself well I managed to come through in the final meters and take the win. Very happy with the result it adds to the great start to the year I have had so far. I have enjoyed the series and very much enjoyed the success I have had so far, something I am making the most of whilst it lasts.
