I spent the final twenty five miles pushing forward by sort of leapfrogging the groups I found ahead of me. Just before Framlingham this method was starting to take it's toll but I felt proud of myself for giving this ride everything I had. Then up ahead I spotted someone mid-group spinning their legs like they rode so many miles every day. I gave myself a shove and when I caught up it was none other than Jon! A said a few genially-expletive words when I caught up, mostly to enquire how he managed to be so far ahead in the field, but he just laughed and kept on spinning his pins.
I've tasted Sportive events now, and I want MORE!
