Leicester Forest Road Race

On Saturday it was the Leicester Forest Road Race in Gilmorton, Leicesetershire. The race is part of the East Midlands Road League and is for the first time being held as a National B event.

Held on local roads, I have done this race three times before. Despite having my stag party the weekend before,. I was still keen to ride and get round.

This however proved not to be the case, with just under an hour of racing  I got my front wheel caught up with someone else’s skewer, causing one of my spokes to break. Gutted.

This meant I could not finish and was out of the race after two or three laps. Not ideal for home roads however something that unfortunately happens in racing. Hopefully I will be able to finish the race next year!!
