Training Abroad – Matt Shaw

Whilst I was pretty gutted I was missing one of the only ‘snow days’ I can remember I was glad to be heading off to a slightly sunnier place: Girona.

Murphy is the 2017 National Champion

A first for women’s cycling in the UK, the National Road Race Championship for Junior Women was run as a standalone race. With a field of 68 riders, the junior women set out on the 54 mile-long circuit comprising of two ‘short’ laps of 10miles, and two ‘long’ laps of 12miles. For the first two laps of the shorter circuit, the peloton remained together, despite several attacks in the opening miles.
