VC Cross Team No.2

It was that time again to get a good thrashing by the seniors in the Yorkshire Points Cross Series. This weeks race was at Myrtle Park in Bingley, it's a really good compact course with the best off-camber descent ever!
I didn't get off to a great start, well to be exact I very nearly missed the start because I was gossiping to some bloke about my future CX bike purchase. As the whistle went i was 50 metres or so behind the pack so i had to catch them up on the flying start.

Anyway, once under way I got settled into my mid pack place and had a battle with one of the regulars right until the last lap when I had a couple of slips on the bends and he gapped me and I couldn't get it back, so we are at 2 -1 now, 2 to him unfortunately. But I was content with the finishing position of 23rd.

It's back over to the Northwest League this weekend in Bolton to scrap it out with 100+ riders!

just make sure you beat Simon then and focus at the start.

Simon said...

Everyone beats me, except the 65 people below me in the current NW League table :)

I hope I'm well enough to race on Sunday as it'll probably be my last race until next September :(

Dave, he still hasn't found the secret weapons stash yet, any clues?
