Will spoke to "E D" after the race:
"It was a really tough course, especially on Junior gearing. I stayed at the front of the race going with attacks on the hills. The winning break of 4 went on the first lap and stayed away with a lead of 2mins. I was constantly attacking on the hills trying to get a break going but nothing was working at first. With about 40miles to go we'd managed to break the field up and I was in a break of 12 chasing the now lead of 3. On the final lap there were a lot of attacks and I had to respond and also close down a lot of gaps. I could feel my legs going a little bit. On the finishing hill I didn't attack as there was a 400m flat at the top. In hindsight I wish I had. In the sprint I was pleased to get 8th place. I'm happy with the overall result an how I rode the race but I'm looking to improve for next time."
