Race Report from winning team OTRT
11 riders were available to race on Sunday for Round 5 of the Oxfordshire Road Race League in Kirtlington. The event was hosted by Cowley Road Condors who sit just ahead of OTRT in the overall club standings.
Following three laps of the short, fast course the team adopted two plans of attack to cover any potential breaks or a lead out on the last lap which Darren Milligan would be making use of.
Race Report from Women's race winner Michelle McCarthy (BMCC)
Thank you organisers of today’s ORRL. For the first time in some time, you also managed to ensure that an event I had signed up for stayed dry!
Today I finally felt prepared for a road race, with a good few weeks of consistent training under my belt. I have to say, when I entered the ORRL events (I entered the Henley event but didn’t start as my knee wasn’t up to it), my bigger concern was whether it was really for ladies, and if it wasn’t, how would I feel?
