Day 1, Cat 2/3. 50min crit with left inside 200m from the finish.

The biggest part of this race was you can sense how nervous people were. No team wanted to take control thus the race became chaotic. Lots of silly crashes(one 30secs after the start and one 30secs from the finish).

Staying near he front and out of danger was the key. Jake joined me in the race but was caught up in the crash at the finish.

Overall it was a good start, 9th plus one of the larger primes. And no one likes singing on the line apparently.

Some free advice; If you crash don't try to spread out your body as much as possible. Instead ball up. Practice it. As I almost had to make a choice between a rider's head or neck.
