Welwyn's Beth Hayward finished a creditable 32nd in the final round of the Matrix Fitness Grand Prix at Stevenage before declaring "criteriums are definitely not my thing at all".
Her slight frame lends itself far more to the mountains rather than the power needed round such a fast course like Stevenage but she finished safely in the leading group.
She said: “I’m just here to support the team and help in any way I can but it’s stacked up even more this year as teams are getting much more professional and it’s really tough.”
After a winter of upheaval following the demise of her former team, she has now found a home at Team Ford EcoBoost and couldn’t be happier.
“It’s a really positive change,” she said. “I feel really happy where I am and there’s such a good atmosphere.
“I just want to enjoy it as that’s the only way you’ll get better is if you’re in a good place.”
