western league cyclo-cross warmley


this was the fourth time i have raced cyclo-cross at warmley (on the edge of bristol) since getting into cross three seasons ago.  the last time i raced there in muddy conditions it cost me a rear mech and chain.  thankfully there were many less who had this problem on sunday since it was wet enough that the mud just did not stick as well.  it was a hell of muddy race though but one of the most fun i have ever ridden.  unlike dry faster races i was not able to go completely full gas because i was concentrating on staying upright, which i did (just), and simply surviving until the end, which i did, so for me it was a win.  overall it was a good day for velo club walcot, with all four of us, nick, tav, james and i finishing.  here are a few images taken by my wife betty bhandari of the day.

in the mix at the western league cyclocross


into my third season of cyclocross in round two of the western league at netham park in bristol yesterday.  although my performance was below average it was a super intense and fun hour.

looking forward to plenty more racing over the autumn / winter season but i need to drop a couple of kilos and work on my top end.
