Planet X pro carbon vs B'twin Mach 720

I've been riding an old b'twin Triban 3 for almost 3 years and it's time for a change. I'm doing 150-200 miles a week and likely to get into racing from early next season. I'm only looking to spend a grand for a complete bike for now but over time will look at better wheels etc.

Planet X have the pro carbon at £899 with full 105 and £999 with full Ultegra. Great pricing for the kit but I know the frame is quite old these days.

The other option is the Mach 720 -

It's lacking just a bit with components by using non 105 chainset and brakes. I would likely change the brakes immediately. It looks a much more modern frame and is raced internationally at U19 level.

Any opinions?
