Good day at XC. Starts with a thin downhill so lined up near the front. PMJ and Sprint went past me before we hit the end of the track. Maintained a strong push and managed the uphills. I'd forgotten how hard HX course is, man alive!
Wheels came off the wagon about 2km before the end, though the 2 team-mates that sped past told me I'd been slowing down for a km or so already. Finished as 3rd Coaster some 3:50 ahead of last year.
I hear Fleet is quite a good HM; was mentioned during a discussion today. I like seeing the colours in TP turn green as the week progresses.
I don't know the local area well enough yet to venture too far off road, but will do more investigating after my Feb HM.
Sounds like a nice bike Hope. Doesn't seem to bad an output drop HC.
After yesterday morning's parkrun and the afternoon MTB ride today was league XC in Bradenham. Described as "Made almost entirely of hills, in itself an achievement." I've done this one twice before but it always comes as a shock!
Maintained first for my club until about 2k from the end when the weekend's fun caught up with my legs. Finished 3rd for the club and somewhere near the front-ish.
