Raced at Hanchurch Woods today. Midlands Round 2. Wow that was a really tough course and the weather was just hot hot hot!
Raced Sport category and came somewhere in the top 10. 7th or 8th I think. Massive turnout too, I reckon at least 45-50 riders in my category! Start was fast, dusty, couldn't see the ground... climbed into 2nd place before we got to the single track and quickly realised I wasn't going to sustain that pace for the whole race... lost a few places when someone from another category stalled in front of me on a technical section. Lost a few more places over the next few laps.
Course was ace, some long climbs and the descents were really demanding. Dusty as hell, rooty and slippery.
So that's 4 races over the last 4 weeks for me. No racing next weekend thank god. Next race Wasing Nationals
