Feels like a nice way to finish up my time racing in France with Team 31 Jollycycles u19 on the podium in a packed field with current junior World and European time trial champions racing. Felt like I rode the best I could on a great course and to end up 4 seconds from the win gives me plenty of motivation for next season! Really cool to get wearing the national champs kit for the first and last time this year☘️ Looking forward to a break now and getting home again, it’s been a great few months ✌️
