This was my last race of the season so was looking forward to finishing it well. The race started well but I quickly realised that today wasn't the day, not having the best legs, suffering from fatigue because of a long season. Nevertheless, I pushed through and despite the grueling nature of the course managed to finish in 2nd, to Chris who was strong today. Now looking forward to some well deserved rest


I was hoping the course would be wetter and everyone would be forced to run the steep uphill at the very end of the field. This usually wears everyone out and gives me an opportunity to make up some extra time using my ex-cross country running skills.

This wasn't the case on sunday

My main goal for this race (and for any other CX race I did) was to have a good start, get into the right position within the opening 2 laps, then keep good rhythm and full concentration for the remaining 45min of racing.

I rode a clean race and didn't make any mistakes so the goal was accomplished.

As a result I managed to finish before Scott sealing 40 league point and ensuring 1st place in the league for 2017/2018. Job done!


Was happy to take the second spot on the podium for the Western League after a busy winter of National Trophy, Western League and Belgian races. The standard in the league has risen which is great!
