VC lincoln crit 3/4 - yarborough & fast & furious behind bars 3/4 - round 1 birmingham business park
A weekend of progress for Jon. Saturday saw Jon travel to Yarborough for the VC Lincoln crit - a very technical and narrow circuit. A mechanical on the front row allowed four riders to immediately form a break, three of which would stay away for the entirety of the race. Jon raced aggressively throughout and formed an early four man break to try and catch the lead group. A lack of cohesion meant that the remaining peloton would catch this break and Jon would settle for a bunch finish.
The second race of the weekend for Jon was the fast and furious Behind bars event (Round 1 @ Birmingham business park). Jon was placed at the front of the bunch from the start and followed most moves that looked promising. With two laps to go he noticed what looked like the decisive attack from a Morvello Basso and Pro Vision rider that he had to follow. The bunch also reacted to this and managed to close down the move leaving Jon spent and not able to contest position for the sprint finish. A great, aggressive weekend!
