Georgie's race went off first, with the girls in the field being given a short headstart to establish themselves at the front of the pack. Georgie was clearly one of the stronger riders in the bunch, maintaining her position when the main field caught the breakaway about 5 minutes into the race. While a number of the other girls were dropped from the main field, Georgie rode an excellent tactical race, keeping out of the wind and moving up in the latter stages of the race. However, she lost count of laps in the final stages and was not prepared for the final sprint. Despite this, she placed well and gained important experience for the next round.
We had a great time, learnt some very important tactical lessons and will be back next week in greater numbers.
