I was relaxed on race morning and I knew what I needed to do to put myself in a good position. Not racing Bermuda, my ranking had dropped to 8th but it still gave me a good choice on the pontoon to have some good swimmers around me. The swim was pretty rough and I got caught up in the mess until the second buoy turn to come back into the pontoon. I started to move around people and move up in the field. The second lap pace got even faster and I had to close a lot of gaps . I exited the water in 7th place and had the agenda to hustle and make the most of the first few kms on the bike as there was still a gap to the first few girls out of the water.
The races that aren’t completely perfect are the ones you learn the most from and I learnt from this race. I am excited for Leeds and the rest of the season to demonstrate what I am fully capable of.
