VC Cross Team

This may be brief.  (Hurray! I hear you cry) 


Last Sunday the SW branch was in the stately grounds of Escot Park.  The place is so good JLS are playing there next month, apparently.

Despite that, it was a great course, two big climbs, noodley techy bits, axle deep slop on tarmac and a bloody great mound to scrabble up and over. 
 I thought afterwards how it reminded my of the old xc races at Lyme Park in the earlier 90's.  I was having a really good race and ploughed through the mid field and finished in 13th place.

ok boss. I'll have a new and improved Makin card on my bars at the next race. Thanks for the motivation, i'll buck up.

I admit, I've skipped cross this year. Never a big cross racer (1-2 races each season) but this year, nowt. Ironically I've loved riding the cross bike.,......go figure.

My point, I'm living vicariously through you too so don't let me down, okay.

2011 though....Inner Grant's endurance racing mojo will be back. Oh yesssss.....once I find the cash for some entries. :-)

will there have to be a Doig card too?

Rocketdog said...

13th?

Unlucky.;-)

Simple, the Makin is used for day exemption, the Doig skips a season. Says he Mr Big Time Racer.
