Steve falls short in first event
WESTON Wheelers Steve Chmiewliski competed in the first event of the Spring Time Pursuits hosted by Mid Devon CC.
WESTON Wheelers' Steve Chmiewliski competed in the first event of the Spring Time Pursuits hosted by Mid Devon CC. This was held over a three-lap course on the A30 near Exeter and a full field rode the event with Steve starting in group 3. The group soon caught the first two groups that had earlier set off. Everyone was keen to take turns at the front and there was a friendly atmosphere in the peleton. The group managed to hold off the other chasing groups, but it was inevitable they would be caught before the end and this happened with about half a lap left to go. The speed increased again, but Steve managed to stay with the main group. Riders started to attack off the front and the bunch started to slow, but Steve tried to go after the leaders, but not knowing the course made the big mistake by going way too early and blew on the last climb before the finish. With other riders passing him, he managed to complete the course in the top 30.
