The course was great, some super fun descents and steep up made for a tough course especially in the mud. I had a good race after getting a small lead at the end of the first lap I managed to ride well to hold on for the win. I really enjoyed the race and event!
As a relative newbie to Cylco cross this was my first ever super-cross! Unsure what to expect I was still really excited to see what the course had to challenge us! The course did not disappoint and was full of technical features and exciting terrain.
I got a fantastic start which was helpful and managed to get into the single track first. I pushed hard on the first lap but couldn’t shake off Amira and Becky so knew I had a hard race ahead of me. Me and Amira managed to get a small gap on Becky when I made a mistake an Amira overtook me. I struggle to get back on my bike as I got tangled, I then had to push hard to get back in touch. I could see Amira in my sights and pressed on.
Approaching the penultimate lap, I punctured which set me back a bit, nevertheless I managed to get to the pits for a bike change and continue. I had one lap left to try and close the gap but eventually ran out of time and was pipped to the line and finished in second place. It was a full-on fast race, fantastic course and strong turnout. Thanks to Kinesis for organising the event and look forward to another one!
