An extended warm up with some harder sections to get over the fatigue of last night’s hard 10, although I still rolled off the start line a little unconvinced my legs would do the business and it took a few miles, probably until the Cutmill turn, before I was really getting into it. Slightly tired legs meant I was spinning a lower gear than usual, but still generating good speed. Turns out Oxford City RC won the cup this year (report). Mark Jones broke the course record with an outstanding 21:11, and I was very happy to be part of a winning team.
