Season Opener: Le Grand prix cycliste d’Ouverture 2016

There is now less than a month to go now until the opening race of my season, Le Grand prix cycliste d’Ouverture in Castelmoron sur Lot.
Training has been going well and I am far further ahead than what I was at the same time last year which is great.

Whilst it is a completely flat circuit, I have fond memories of this race as I managed rather incredibly to finish 4th in 2015 (2nd in the bunch sprint), however this was largely down to my team mate Christian Balse, taking me up to the front and perfectly timing his effort.

As I am now racing in 2nd Category this year, I am expecting it to be far more difficult – time will tell…

For more details of the race take a look at the official website:
