Spring time race 2

Another week and another Spring Time Pursuit, These odd ball events kick off the year and like last year and for many other riders this is a great spring board for the year with the goal to feel stronger from each round, Round 2 i was again in group 2 with a solid group 1 starting 2mins ahead of us, Lap one and i was feeling strong and did a large part of the work and we cut the lead down to just 1min, Few people wanted to work but we gave a pace line of sorts a try but we only took another 20 seconds off the group in front and it was time to cut back on the work and wait for the quicker riders from group 3 to join us, With just the last rolling hill section to go we were joined first by a few riders, Exeter Wheeler rider with a MDCC rider latched on to his wheel followed by another bunch of 4, As we headed up the climb it was clear that the pace was not going to catch the lead group and at the back of the pack i put a fun effort in, some 10 seconds later of sprinting we were at the front and kept on going before getting sucked back in to the pack to finish race 2 with a strong ride.
