British National Road Championships- Isle of Man
Written by Velo Staff on 27th June 2017
The British Champs was always going to be a savage race. Not only because it was held on the infamous Isle of Man TT circuit which features Snaefell a 20 minute climb, which once the riders crest the top they are faced with a very fast decent with a few corners that the strong winds just whip through.
The other factor being the exceedingly strong field of competitors. Featuring some of the top UK pro tour guys.
The race sure did not disappoint in the savage department! Only 12 riders finished the race with only Ian Bibby of JLT hanging with the pro tour guys and taking a fantastic 3rd place. Impressive stuff.
Our guys Mike and Elliott put in some strong riding and finished in the diminished remaining peleton. Certainly a tough day out.
