Aberdeen District Evening Road Race – No 5

Aberdeen District Evening Road Race – No 5

August 12, 2013 Off By petef

Club members John Smith, David Miller and Peter Flick competed in the 38 mile district road race on Thursday 8th August from Knockburn Loch.

An open category event and it proved to live up to that billing. With an average speed of over 24 mph the pace never let up with plenty of attacks.

The downpour at the start of the race was unwelcome and the choice of carbon rims was not looking very wise, thankfully the rain subsided and the roads quickly dried.

Peter Flick managed to stay with the main group until the final 2.8km climb which broke up the field (and broke him). David Miller and John Smith had a harder time at the event losing touch on the first and second laps of the 4 lap loop.
