Had a brilliant weekend and a terrible race. Which is exactly what I said last year! Must admit I just spat the dummy in stage 3, I think I wasn't actually doing that badly but I felt like a total knobber and just stopped trying very hard. Wee bit disappointed about that, not very me. Pushed stuff I shouldn't have, ah well.
Broke my back brake in a silly wee crash in stage 1 so a lot of the final section became a run/slither/crash/fall, which was funny but not really what I was there for! So, ended up down in the 200s, and entirely deserved
But, bad racing doesn't mean bad riding, still loved most of race day and all of practice, stage 2 underwater was just amazing, loved every second of that, brilliant on raceday too if not quite so mad. And a great atmosphere all the way through.
Some day I want to do a race up there and not **** it up But in the meantime I reckon I'll just have a blast while ****ing it up
