good xc racing dachs and simon. much more productive than mine.
i had birmingham league and for the 3rd yr in a row i had a stinker in coventry. the course is perfect for me (when its dry) but i suffered badly. was down in the 100's behind people i beat by over a minute last week. Ralied on the last lap and pulled some places back to get 62nd. about 40 secs behind people who havent got within 30 secs of me this season. so a real stinker. i suffer badly in the gloopy ankle deep mud. only positive was in the last 800m there was a 3.48 1500m on my shoulder and his team mates gave a shout out that we were lined up perfectly to destroy with a sprint finish. i remember thinking good luck with that. i might be crap for 5 miles but the last 200m i will find a pulse. i beat him by 3 secs with my sprint finish trying my best to retire this xc season now and focus on track stuff.
