UCI Junior World Cup - Hadleigh Park - Ben Matthews
Early start to the track cold and grey Skies. The team went on a practise loop looking at all the a and b lines finding the faster line; after then we waited nervously for the startup.
It was time on the grid ready to race, the whistle went everyone sprinting clipped in and racing. At the first corner I crashed knocking my stem out of line, I had a multi tool and was quickly fixed and carrying on; lost the pack covered in blood but carrying on. The race went well, the sun out and the club cheering me on. I got lapped in 2 lap then that was my race over quick and painful but one of the best I have done.
