Well, I did my stint at the International Cicle Classic this weekend in rainy Rutland and it was just about everything you could want from a bike race; great course, good strong line up and the most atrocious weather i have ever witnessed a race in (since the TOB in Dumfries last year anyway).
The racing was hard and brutal and amounted to a war of attrition between the strong men until the best perm in the peloton, belonging to Alexandre Blain,
cleared off on his own to win.
Personally i was having a blast. Pink bib and access all areas pass wading around muddy fields and parking in farmyards it just doesnt get any better. The only concern was in keeping my kit dry and my lenses rain free. But hey this was just part of the challenge of the day.
This race is awesome and that there rain just doubled the awesominity (mm!) of it all.
Sorry riders if you didnt enjoy it. Whats it got to do with you anyway?
