Imperial Winter Series Race at Hillingdon

Will rode the first Imperial Winter Series Race on Saturday at Hillingdon. He rode in the 3rd race, with medium sized field of around 50. Will attacked and tried to get away, only succeeding once and being caught very quickly.   
The race was frustrating as despite being one of the few who where trying to get away they where regularly caught by the bunch who wanted a group sprint. Will finished mid-way in the sprint despite a promising 4th position going into the last chicane. 

This was a good first race of the 2013 season, Will showed good fitness to stay in the bunch after being in attacks.

Instead of flogging away at Hillingdon for the rest of winter, during January and February Will will swap to Redbridge which has a 12% hill and that will hopefully be better suited to hiss abilities.
