Stuck in the 11 Richard however was still able to initiate a breakaway with 50 mile still left in the race. With only 1 other rider Richard rode the remainder of the race as a 2up Time Trial ahead of the bunch to contest the victory. Unfortunately despite attacking early, Richard was unable to sprint to victory due to his previous mechanical issues, finishing 2nd.
A great performance and clearly shows Richard's potential for next season. This was an excellent way to end the team's road races for the season, with only the Highfields Kitchens Trophy on Thursday at Prissick left to be contested by the Elite Team.
