My excellent early season TT form, very evident during April, was brought back down to earth a bit during May. I suspect it had something to do with damaging my knee at the end of April on the Red Rose audax, which meant I spent some of the month trying to nurse it back to health and it still isn’t quite right. It wasn’t all bad though, with new PB’s at 10 mile and 25 mile during the month, and another cheque for £7 continuing my professional career!
I also did a bit of training for the alps trip which is fast approaching, with a couple of 200k rides over some hills, including some in Yorkshire that might feature in a certain French race later in the summer! However, I haven’t done as much climbing training as I have for the past two years, with most of my riding being fast and flat, so the alps may be slightly interesting!
