Sunday 24th April saw me wearing a race number for the first time in 6mths, and my first outing in Team Bottrill colours.

Injuries aren’t fun so 10wks of watching results come in for races i should have been on the start line for has been tough. But after a few weeks of building a base I decided a local 15mile TT might be a good place to do my first bit of effort.

I knew I had to be realistic about my fitness levels so having no expectations was quite refreshing. Dare I say I enjoyed the 15 miles of undulating, crappy road surfaces and big bonus, I wasn’t completely sh*t So you could say I’m back… !? Only now there’s the small matter of finding some speed… Wish me luck 😉
