No less than 12 hours after touching down in the States I was pinning a number onto my jersey. Lining up for the 70 mile road race in 100+deg heat fuelled on airplane food I didn't have massive expectations so saw it as a way to shake off the travel and jetlag. Wasn't too much fun and I failed miserably trying to bridge to the break on my own ending up 8th. We had 4 days of crits to follow which were fun but I was run down and didn't have much to give which was disappointing.

I found out today that I have passed my first year at Bath, phew! I have been out of the country and not attended a single lecture since December!
