My last track event before I head home to Dublin for Nationals was last weekend at Reading Velodrome, the 5th round of the National Omnium Series.
A week previous I got the entry list from the organiser and it had four of the Irish Development Squad on it! I had already raced against Ciara Horne, but had never heard of the other three. It would be a great chance to see how I faired against them before Nationals.
Throughout the whole day I preformed well. Always placing in the top 4 in each event. Sometimes consistency can pay off!! I was 2nd going in to the final event, the Points race. I don’t think I raced it as tactically as I could have and came away with 3rd Place overall. Very pleased to podium again in a National Omnium.
1 Ciara Horne Irish Dev. Squad 14 points
2 Harriet Owen Motorpoint 20 points
3 Lydia Boylan Look Mum No Hands! 20 points
And I’m now in 2nd in the National Series!!
Only a week and a half now until I head home for Nationals and I’m getting more and more excited and pretty nervous! But I’m ready to give it my best shot!
