Would’ve been easier today to not be in fairly decent shape currently, a strange sentence to hear perhaps but I’m going quite well at the moment which has got me all excited for this week, Challacombe was always going to be pivotal today and knowing the climb was a good and bad thing, good in that I knew what we were in for but bad in that I knew exactly what we were in for!
.
As expected the race exploded up there, it’s relentlessly steep, I started it close enough to the front, top 20, having taken some big risks being late on the brakes on the wet descent into Woolacombe to be there and then was conscious on the climb I didn’t want to make any big accelerations early on because of what was coming, so I kind of enjoyed watching others make huge efforts there knowing there was a high possibility I’d see them again 500m later can, allaphilipe & co being the exception 😂 . It settled and I settled into a rhythm I hoped (prayed) I could hold to the top, around the 500-550w mark and gratefully eased off for any decelerations in the bunch. The pace that was set on the front stretching us out was what felt like 0.25kph too fast for what I could sustain and again, knowing the climb would kick on for a good 200metres or so further made me reluctant to launch any kind of sprint or horrendously unsustainable anaerobic acceleration I had left to bridge the gap, knowing I would promptly explode in spectacular fashion, in hindsight I don’t think there was any kind of acceleration left in the tank to be honest, it’s always easy to look back wondering if you had more, especially when it’s so close, I don’t think I did but who knows what the body is capable of and how deep it can go truly.
.
This meant I was the last guy not to make front group and has left me reeling, considering any life choices I’ve made in the run up to this race, cookies consumed and whatnot.
.
In short, it’s nice to be going well, and also deeply frustrating. 😂
.
In other news, Devon was as frantic as ever, narrow, up down left right etc, just mental. Very cool to ride through Croyde also, regular holiday spot for the Dowsett’s, many a summer spent down there! Onto Bristol tomorrow for some more chaos👌

.
For me, it was a really pleasant day, rolling welsh countryside without any precipitation, England you’ve got a job to do because the welsh crowds were out in force and bought all the enthusiasm! Went well up the final climb, clocked 665w for 1min which is good for me but is a weak point of mine the 1-3min powers. I’m more of a 10-60min power guy, caused some trouble in the leadout at the end, knocked the gun boys off the sky leadout train in a corner, with 1k to go, sorry not sorry lads, sorry @swiftybswift 😂

Solid result with 6th today, just 5s off the 2nd step of the podium, pretty happy after not being fully comfortable on my tt bike for a while and now feeling like I’m getting back in the game, that said @stefankueng gave us all an education in short tt’s today, this were super close for the rest of us but he was in a class of his own out there, frightening numbers I’m sure considering my 440w avg.
.
Short tt’s are always super competitive as there’s so many more riders in the mix, the time triallists are still v competitive but then you have to keep a close eye on the punchy guys that can smash it round. Put into the British tt scene perspective you can have some strong roadmen that’ll give the National 10 a good nudge whereas the 25 and upwards are for the specialists. .
Some more opportunities for @marcelkittel this week in the sprints, we were so close yday we can all smell that stage win!

Slick looking bike/kit/helmet isn’t it 😉

Premature end to my race yesterday, a broken wheel at a key moment of the race for @nathanpeterhaas meant the wisest move as a team was to handover mine at that moment, after pushing Nathan off I had a painfully slow change from neutral service and a narrower wheel than our race zipps so the brake pads not touching the rim in the middle of the wet Surrey hills made life quite impossible to regain contact with the bunch.

Being a teammate isn’t always about fetching bottles and leading out, sometimes it’s sacrificing your race to give the best rider that day the opportunity to win..and Nathan’s breakaway at the end almost did exactly that

Couple of media bits ahead of tomorrow’s @ridelondon, though 2 feelings have overshadowed anything else going on today, .
One being utterly inspired by @geraintthomas86’s finishing off of the tdf win today! Was always aware of G and looked up to him being a couple of years up the road from me but on the same path I wanted to tread. G’s win will be one of those from inside the pro peloton where absolutely everyone is happy for him, very similar to Matt Hayman’s Roubaix win, everyone will smile.
.
The second was worry in sending off @yourroyalthighness_ this evening to start the ride 100 tomorrow v early, today Chanel’s been real nervous about it, like it’s sunk in what’s being undertaken but she’s well prepared and I have every confidence she will cruise it and I’ll be super proud. We have the find my friends app running so I’ll be able to make sure she’s on the move and making good progress. I won’t lie there’s some worry there, makes me realise what Chanel does every day seeing me roll out the door for training or head off to a race, or what my dear mum and dad must’ve gone through letting me train on the roads, exaggerated by the Haemophilia that lurked around as well, no wonder mum reminds me I owe her a facelift 😂. If you see Chanel though, she’ll be in @katushasports kit, @bellbikehelmetsuk lid and on a black @canyon please give her a shout!
.
Anyways, bedtime soon here, hope everyone riding tomorrow has an absolute blast, I’m going to enjoy it also! .
TOP TIPS
Watch out for that bend in dorking, it’s tighter than it looks.
.
Don’t go out the blocks like a greyhound, you’ll pay for it later!
.
Be wary of other riders in front and behind you and keep looking ahead!
.
Food and drink, little and often, don’t leave it till your hungry or thirsty!
.
Any other tips leave them below for other riders to see.

Today was a good day, rode my bike, fitted spacers to the defender to make it wider innit, after 5 years of knocking on the door of an 18 I finally cracked it round the Maldon 10 this evening. @yourroyalthighness_ clocked a 30.30 for her first 10.
