Well done both.
aP – are you the Archer rider? I was the bloke at the finish with the clipboard stood with Mark D and Kelvin’s son.
Glad you enjoyed the course OG. Results are up on the Central CXL website, also check out the photos, some really funny ones.
Apologies if it seemed a bit chaotic and disorganised yesterday, it’s because it was! Getting there on Sunday morning to see the weather and flooding had undone a lot of what we did on Saturday was a tad frustrating and left us with a bit more to do than usual and a shorter course as a result. Had to change the bits near the lake, as well as the start finish as we couldn’t take a vehicle/gazebo any further than the hard standing.Posted 5 years ago
Hammerite – yup. I came up and had a chat with Mark earlier as well, you too I guess! Liam then ‘attached’ himself to us for the period I wasn’t riding.Posted 5 years ago
Not going to Reading today, been a long week and have got work to do so a 3 hour road ride instead this morning. Bid preparation this afternoon.
Will be at the next 2 though.The Swedish ChefMember
Local race this morning, minus 6 when we set off. Nice little 40 mins before the last two rounds of the national cup next weekend. Managed to put a hole in my tights/knee after misjudging a corners entry speed 😳
Frozen ground and low pressure tubs makes for some interesting sensations going through the bike!Posted 5 years agobarrykellettMember
Larne, final round of the Ulster Cyclocross league.Posted 5 years ago
Championships in 2 weeks, hopefully Will go better. Legs were in bits yesterday. Poor prep so at least I know why. The worst thing about cross racing is you know within 2 laps whether you are going to enjoy it or suffer it!Adam_BucklandMember
Really good course in Basingstoke on Sunday for Southern Champs. Flat and fast, not muddy and fun on the BMX circuit. Apart from a terrible start my race was pretty uneventful as I minced around in the lower positions but bloody hell the front runners are fast!!!Posted 5 years ago

yea.. i heard the geezer cleaning up in the local western league John whittington (he lapped me the other week and i was 10th) came 3rdPosted 5 years ago
Raced in a depleted western league in Bristol yesterday. Quite muddy in places and less technical than other courses. About a 3rd of the course was on tarmac.
Got a really good start, half way round on the tarmac section i saw a group of 6 sheltering from the wind.. so overtake them all to find myself in 2nd position! Some guy joined me and we battled for 5 laps until he pulled away. I got 3rd. My best result so far so well chuffedPosted 5 years agobarrykellettMember
Last league round doubling up as Ulster Championships.
Very technical course. And very claggy mud so I did a lot of running on the first few laps to try and save the bike from clogging up.
Was with a group of 4 guys, confident after previous performances i could beat them. Rode all the muddy bits on the 2nd last lap to try and gap them, started to pick up a lot of mud. Then on the final lap when I hadn’t shook them off, I imploded! A minute slower on my last lap and crossed the line feeling like I would be quicker on my hands and knees!
Wee video from the event also:
Ended up 11th 🙁Posted 5 years ago
