A great result for YOGi Sarah Austin in the first road race of her season, taking 3rd place in the Springtime Pursuits. Another rider with YOGi connections, Lyndsey Glazier, worked hard in the scratch group finishing 8th.
The British Cycling website had this to say,
The race came together after about two of the five laps, and while some of the front group couldn’t stay with the pace of the more experienced riders four did manage to keep up, and Austin did well to take third spot.
