Hillingdon Grand Prix 2/3/4’s 9th June
After riding every day the previous week my legs were very tired so I wasn’t looking forward to this one. Roughly 120 riders turned up to this event making it one of the largest and more dangerous races I have ridden. My race was mostly uneventful and I was pleased I managed to avoid crashing, despite coming close on many occasions.
I tried to have a couple of digs and with 3 laps to go I tried to open a gap but didn’t have the legs.The race ended in a bunch sprint with Paul Crook winning and former Willesden rider Roger Woodford finishing in 2nd place.

Hillingdon Circuit race 12th June
I didn’t do much on Sunday so for once I felt pretty good for a Tuesday,PCA were not in full force this week so it looked like it might come down to a bunch sprint at the end. However a small group did get away in the closing stages of the race and the remaining places were to be decided in the sprint. I tried to get myself in the right place to contend the sprint but got blocked in and was unable to get near the front.
