Pleased with a top 10 finish in yesterday’s world ranking sprint @AntwerpSOM, finishing 9th in the world class field...even if I did fall apart in the chase 😖. Great to see my teammate @charlward92 take the win & @cdmegan in 5th. @OnTheRedLineO 🏴🇬🇧🏴 pic.twitter.com/IOmNARQzSA— Kirstin Maxwell (@kirstinmax) 1 July 2018
