British National Cycling Champs, Isle of Man, June 2017

A great location and a tough route using the TT course for the road race. Standing up at Creg Ny Baa as the peloton careered down at over 60mph before leaning into the corner as they kept the speed up then accelerated onto the next straight. A breakaway for Steve Cummings in the men’s road race to go with his time trial victory. A fantastic come back after injury and a great confidence builder as he heads into the Tour de France. A great win for the Manx rider Anna Christian in the U23 women’s time trial, a bit of crowd control needed as a rowdy duck threatened to block the road. Once the race was over another 20 or so ducks broke through the barriers and crossed. We couldn’t find a chicken to ask why.
