Growing old disgracefully

  • Breaking the cycle

    ‘nother cyclocross race (that’s 9 so far this season – 8 in the North West league, so one more and I actually get a finishing place in said league!) ‘nother semi-half not too bad start followed shortly afterwards by ballsing it up. This time round I missed my line on a teeny tiny lump on the course (the very lump featured in the pic below in fact) and flung myself into some incredibly spikey bushes (the very spikey bushes featured in the pic below, in fact) and ended up not far off being last for a short while. Idiot!

    Lots more chasing down took place, as per “usual”, with some proper pre-race course checking with the Horwich lads paying off on the tricky sections, combined with laying down all the (feeble) power I had on the straights. I worked my way back up to 8th despite a few more cock ups, but couldn’t string a decent enough lap together to get and stay past 7th. Ho hum.

    It finished with me feeling like I’d missed an opportunity to get another really decent finish, but I guess that’s good in it’s own way.

    Next up in the Macclesfield Supacross. Apparently it’s quite an event and all the big boys come out to play (I’ve never done it, so I wouldn’t know!). The course should, apparently, suit me quite well, so here’s hoping for a mistake free race for once! 🙂
