The first proper 'cross race of the season was on Saturday night and naturally VeloCake were there and showing the opposition a clean pair of heals.
It was an interesting event completely in the dark around the NPS course that had also had the mtb race there in the afternoon. The seniors field had the likes of Paul Oldham from Hope, some pro from the Sports Beans team and Adrian Timmis. As well the as those "pros" in the field, the race also had Paul Davis from the V.C. Moulin who had come down to the south west to race against our John. What with Grant racing this season in the Scottish cross league, this could be the start of friendly rivalry.
Unfortunatly for John there were 4 places difference between them, but he was noble in defeat and gallantly brought up the rear in 30th spot. (at least he finished).
There are a few more photographs and results from the event on British Cycling. crossy photos
