Jacob Start Season Update
The year kicked off to a good start with mdcc spring circuit races with two races in one day where I took both wins at my first races after lockdown where I had been training hard. The next race was the Colin Lewis grand prix with hard competition from the well know race , in the end I claimed a podium place and a as a team we claimed a 2,3,4 . following those races we decided to go up to odd down for a bigger race and bigger competition(35 riders) at the start of the odd down 2021 series , I finished 5th in the leading bunch . this race was followed by the 2nd race of the series in one of the hottest days of the year, at this race I managed to beat my previous result with a 4th in a grouped sprint which places me 3rd overall in the series with one race to go.
This was quickly followed by the last velopark race of the year where I attacked off the front half way through with a teammate , and we then worked together to take the win for MDCC as did my teammate in her age category. Due to the absence of most road races I turned my view to the club 10 mile time trials where I achieved a pb of 29:10 on a slow course and the age 12 category ghs South West title , winning by just 4 seconds.
Recently I have just competed in my 1st hill climb at haytor one of my many local climbs and one I know very well which was useful when we arrived at the start and the mist descended giving you a short range of what was ahead of you I clocked in at at a time of 19:53 taking 2 minutes off my previous pb , I am now training cyclocross season and the last road race of the year .
