Today's cyclo-cross race was at Clayton and Ali kindly came and took some pictures. Although I'm not sure she enjoyed standing around in a muddy field. Before the start I met Trev and caught up with a few people from the last race. Then it was time to go, I managed to hang in at the start - usually everyone seems to disappear but it got harder and harder as time went on and the steps I had to carry my bike up definitely got harder as my bike just got heavier and heavier. After 8 complete laps and the 1st shortened lap I finished 3rd female. There were 7 of this race I think. I am shattered now and was ready to stop after the first 10minutes!
