I ended my season on the deck at the infamous Piccolo Lombardia race...hitting the ground at nearly 70kph resulted in a badly smashed up arm and severe road rash to my leg :(
A seriously tough race, contested by all the top Eurpoean U23 development teams (AG2R, Lotto Soudal, BMC, Rabbobank etc) made even more difficult due to the cold and wet conditions, around the impossibly beautiful landscape of Lake Como in northern Italy.
I was mixing it up at the sharp end of things for most of the race but ran short of energy on the last climb and had to make up time on the descent where I crashed after taking one to many risks.
A real shame as the previous race Ruota D'Oro, another UCI 1.2 I had really good legs and got in the top 30 out of a field of 250 riders.
Really enjoyed my late season 6 week spell of racing in Italy, the style of racing really suits me and I'm looking forward to returning there next year.
