Stage 4 - 95Km

Good day for the team yesterday with Ollie Robinson 3rd place on stage 4 after being in a break for 90km of the 95km stage! Just missed out on the win by a wheels distance. Tobias remains the best rider on GC at 1.38 on 27th place.

Toby Perry and Issac Wright are working hard for the team and all 4 riders are still in the race before the queen stage today finishing up the final 7km climb of the Tumble.

 

Race Report from Isaac

I knew coming into the race that it was going to be tough. I had never done a proper stage race before like this. I found the second stage the hardest with it being the longest (120k). I was dropped with about 30k to go and rode to the finish at my own pace, rolling in 15 mins down on gc. After I knew the form wasn't there and it was just about getting round.

The crit was good fun and I finished about 60th, which was much better than the day before. The flat road stage brought a welcome change away from the hills and I rolled in with the main bunch.

The final stage was rolling until the Tumble which was the finishing climb. I didn't have the legs do anything before the finish, so I just waited in the bunch. The climb was brutal, especially on tired legs and I finished 50 something, which was my best result of the tour.

It was a shame that I didn't have any form going into it and didn't get the results I wanted. It was great fun to be part of a team.  A massive thanks to Colin and all the other parents who did a great job behind the scenes.

Race Report from Tobias

After coming 19th as a reserve last year I was really looking forward to racing the Junior Tour of Wales this year. I was listed as one to watch, which gave me some more confidence in the run up to the event.

The time trial went as well as it could have considering I was on a road bike. I ended up only 90 seconds down on the leader. On day two I wasn't feeling amazing but managed to hold onto the front group to climb up to 21st on GC on the hardest stage. Day three with the two stages was always going to be tough and the crit was the race I was dreading. I just about got round and only lost a handful of seconds. Coming into that afternoon stage I just stayed safe and rolled in with the bunch. I missed the move but it was good to see Ollie Robinson get in that and represent South East, coming in 3rd. 

By now I was down to 27th on GC and was disappointed in my performance.  The final day was one where I knew I could do well and fortunately, thanks to Ollie's help mid way through the race, I managed to stay with the leaders into the tumble. Here I just followed Pidcock and the other leaders up the climb to form a select group of 8. I made sure to save as much as I could to come past the others in the run up to the finish to take 3rd. This was a great result for me and helped me move up 15 places on GC to come 12th overall. A great result and a nice way to pick up my 1st cat in the process.
