The first elite races of the year were held up in Scotland, and I had high hopes after a good winter training.

The classic never got going for me really. I made bad route choices and was scrappy, and I was off the pace from the start. Tough motivationally at the start of a long season, and only 4 days to pick myself up before the JK
