Warburton Road Race and Team Ride

Like most decisions to enter races, Pete and I decided to put our names down on a whim. I did no recon – I had no idea of the parcours and its awful climbs, no idea Warburton was so far away and no idea that the place is a slightly greener, much wetter version of Mordor.



Thanks @AndyFP7 for the photo

In summary, it was a horrible drive out there, the race was horrifically hard (for me at least, although Pete breezed through each climb and came 7th even after literally not riding since the weekend before). Blackburn ran a great race and we’re grateful they run a really selective course when far too many races seem to end in bunch sprints.
Well done Pete!

On Sunday the team (minus Nick who was racing and Stu who….well, Stu was recovering from a big dinner the night before) had a nice ride down the coast with a few friends of the team.
