George Pittock had another excellent result at yesterday’s RGT Isle of Man National – the second of three virtual races on the indoor training app that have been set up to replace the British Cycling Junior Men’s Road Series.
Once again the race attracted a good field of junior men from across Europe, using the Isle of Man TT course along the coast from Douglas to Ramsey and back inland over the mountains with 2,566ft of climbing on the 45km circuit.
A fast start saw the race split up very quickly, with only 20 riders in the main peloton after just 5km. George was well palced at the top of the 9km ascent of Snaefell at 1331ft, the summit at the 32km point, and stayed in on the fast descent into Douglas. He finished eighth overall and second placed GB rider.
