Storm Force 10...kicking off the Cornish GP season!

January 22, 2017

 

The 2017 Cornish Grand Prix series returned with Storm Force 10 at Camborne. Crisp and chilly weather on the start line with a very gentle breeze signalled that this was going to be the perfect day for a PB. Straight into it from the start line into a fast downhill section, as the course heads out into the wintry countryside to the south-west of Camborne. A brief shower 15-20 minutes into the race cooled things down nicely, as we followed the undulating road out towards Leedstown and Praze-an-Beeble, with some slippery wet mud dragged onto the roads by farm vehicles from the surrounding fields. Everyone was digging deep from 8.5-9.5 miles up the final long hill, which seemed to drag on forever, before flying for the last half a mile on the downhill section into Camborne. Enjoyed some nice battles with Steve Strachan early on, then Kieran Murrant around the 7 mile mark, which really helped to improve the pace.
