Good fun in the A4s today. Patrick Conlon (Orwell) won it deservedly, breaking away in the first couple of minutes, getting reeled in a bit later, then attacking and staying away with another rider.
Meanwhile I was digesting my pre-race cappuccino and using Patrick's breakaway as an excuse to enjoy the scenery and do very little.
There were a fair few attacks off the bunch and some splits, but everything came back together for the uphill finish, just behind Pat+other.
I finished out of the placings in something like 10th, pleased to complete with no back issues. I almost passed out several times riding back to Bunclody, so I guess I worked enough.
Nice course, good quality roads and no issues with marshalling. The safest race I've done in ages.
Thanks Slaney CC!
