Pre Season Prep Racing

Postby Chrisbro » Tue Aug 13, 2013 9:58 am

After helping Mac & Josie et al at the Watford Hub Go Ride yesterday ( as attended by Chris Hoy etc) and having some fun racing and staying on to pack up, we carried on down to the London Summer Series cyclo cross race at Bethlem Hospital - hosted by Dulwich Paragon, in West Wickham.

A lot of familiar faces from CXL ( so this is where they all get there pre season prep done 8) ) and Conall had enjoyable battle with the series leading youth riders in not exactly a big field but two excellent riders. Unfortunately Conall had puncture at start of final lap so had to run / ride carefully to finish...but the first 3 had such a big lead Conall still came in 3rd overall...and so was on podium for the second time in one day.

Definitely need to practice bunny hops on CX bike and hurdling, all a bit rusty but encouraging speed and power.

Epic to read about the National Team 12 hour results....what a year to do it!

Nice one guys - 'spose I'd better think about putting in a few miles on the CX bike before too long - might just wait for the saddle sores to heal up a bit first :shock:
