Following a good start, the team made a critical error in missing a key breakaway and failing to act decisively. Our young team was left to carry the burden of chasing, with no support until it was too late. We struggled, and were unable to bring the break back, with the effort impacting our strength over the rest of the week. On the final decisive stage, a brutal day of attrition with successive hard climbs, Lionel Mawditt finished 6th on the stage, and 6th overall, with 2nd in the teams classification offering a small amount of consolation. The result wasn’t at the level we’ve set for ourselves, however lessons were learnt and will be applied in future races.
