The course was a mix of very muddy sections, steps or slopes to steep to ride up and the lovely blue route at Prestwich. I enjoyed the course even with the amount of walking I was doing and on my fourth lap I was starting to get into it. I could no longer see the girl who had been on my tail for quite a while but I was hoping to get back just in time for a 5th lap, as it turns out I missed it by about 30seconds.
Still 2hours of riding, average heart rate of 174bpm, 15.5miles covered and 555m of climbing. Oh and I managed to win the race so I got to stand on a car tyre. It was the first race on the new bike and it was brilliant, in fact at times I thought I was probably annoying it by braking as the Superfly certainly wanted to go faster.
- To Jason for organising the event - it was awesome!
- Chris for putting my pedals on before the race and then washing both mine and Ali's bike after the race
- Cookson Cycles for helping me out when it came to purchasing the Superflyand gernerally just being great
- To my Mum for finding a race I had mentioned in passing and buying me a bacon butty at the end of the race.
