    I agree, last night was the most fun I have had on a bike for quite a while.

    For those who did not go, the course was unique. Some sections on the new Bath closed circuit tarmac race track, some of the Bath BMX track (jumps and berms) and some quite challenging single track.

    Well done to the organisers!

    I cannot make Warmley but should be at Oldbury (I think they were saying last night that Lockleaze has now moved to the end of the series).

    Nice one!

    I cannot make the Warmley round and with Lockleaze moving to the end of the series I won’t be riding one until Oldbury on the 17th.

    Good course on Wednesday evening, a bit of everything in a 1 mile circuit. Tarmac, grass, singletrack, BMX jump and berm, tricky descent and climb in the woods.

    Good for MTBers too. On my warmup lap I was wishing I had brought my 29er but it was fine on a cross bike. I lost it twice on the cut grass track, it got very slippy as the race wore on.

    And I was one of the pussies on the jumps 🙂

    Did you race?

    it was bone dry.. bit of a climb, rutted and some narrow singletrack.

    Loved the course although turned up a bit late and only had 10minutes warm up. Managed 6th place but was holding off 6th place guy for 6 laps until he took me on the last lap and i couldn’t respond

    Next race in 2 weeks

    Came over in the end, I was in the dodgy looking yellow VW T4. N022 all in black with a white Helmet. I enjoyed it, good course, made a nice change to do cyclocross on a fast dry track. No idea where I finished, probably my usuall mid pack. Did notice there aren’t as many vets as in S.Wales. There was only one other V50 as far as I could see. Loads more of us old boys across the channel !! Deff try and do another one.

    Hope to make it but I have a lot on tonight and have to replace the hanger on my bike and may not get a chance to do it. I should still be there with the kids though.

    Tough tough race last night. So hot i suffered like a dog

    Totally dropped off the pace towards the end and got overtaken by 2 guys with 2 laps to go (after building up a gap of 300 metres for 7 laps)

    Although I did speak to them at the end and they said they were working together to get to me

    Nope.. no drinks. mouth was dry as old boots

    Was anyone else drinking? I’ve got no bottle cages on my bike but noticed some riders had

    It was the last one. Managed 6th in the league overall which i’m pleased with (beaten by .17 of a point from the organiser.)
