The weekend started on Saturday for Rob as he was going to the aspire coaching ran by Steve Manser. On Saturday Rob did core skills and then rode the course to see what it was like. The course was smooth, quick and running well, with a few tricky climbs and descents thrown in.
On Sunday we all woke up early to make the two hour journey to the event. When we arrived Rob, Luke and Connor set about doing a warm up lap. During the warm up lap Connor was complaining that his arms hurt, so Connor decided to go home to check out if his injury was serious. With Harry in New York, George with his injury and Connor with his, this left Rob and Luke to do it for the youths, with George made as camera man for the day, all was in hand. Rob finished the race in fourth and Luke in tenth. With Matt taking forty forth in the men's category after starting last unfortunately because of a puncture at the start of the race.
