Kent Cyclopark Summer Series Round 2, 3/4 category criterium race

Thu 26 Apr 2018

Hugo Evans was on the start line for the first time this season since shearing his collarbone last year so was looking forward to racing again after a 9 month break.

Familiar with the Gravesend circuit he was not surprised at the fast start and duly settled in to the fast pace,at the halfway point he jumped away from the bunch to bridge across to 2 escapees who were half a lap off the front. With no racing in his legs he didn't quite make the junction so had to return to the chasing peloton.

Our two leaders stayed away to the finish to claim the top positions leaving Hugo to get involved in the bunch gallop in which he claimed 10th place. After having gone into the red zone earlier in the proceedings he was more than happy with his performance after such a long lay off.
