George Pittock raced the RGT Hatherleigh National this afternoon – the first of three virtual races on the indoor training app that have been set up to replace the British Cycling Junior Men’s Road Series. The race was not restricted to British riders and attracted 120 junior men from across Europe. The 50km race used the same Devon course as the race itself with 2000ft of climbing and was very realistic.
George got into the front group of 18 riders early in the race and stayed with them until the final 12km, eventually finishing 14th overall and fourth placed GB rider. George’s good friend George Wood from Sheffield finished 2nd.
