Weekend Double ‘Cross

Posted: December 2, 2013

It was a double-header last weekend, with an eastern League race at Grafham on Saturday and a London League event at Penshurst on Sunday. I’m feeling pretty tired right now, but I’m glad I made the effort and pleased with my results… Saturday was almost a washout, as I arrived 10 minutes after guaranteed sign-on […]

A Trip to the Palace

Posted: October 30, 2013

I‘ve been having a lot of fun with the cyclocross so far this season. The bikes have been behaving, the legs have been in reasonable shape and the weather has remained the right side of awful, with just enough mud to keep me on my toes. Apart from the first race, I’ve been on the […]

A brief rundown of recent races: Hillyfields: A homecoming of sorts, this race took place in the grounds of my former art college in Colchester. It’s been 20 years and I had hoped for a triumphant return, but Ross Tricker got away early and, although I was 2nd for most of the race, an in-form […]

I rode the Gorrick Spring Series after the cyclocross season ended and I’m now three quarters of the way through the infamous Beastway series in London. It’s been great fun […]

Round four of the Gorrick Spring Series finally seemed to be living up to its name, as the sun beamed down on Frith Hill at the weekend, giving everyone a taste of what we all hope is to come over the next few months. The fantastic course was bone dry and super-fast, although my bike […]

MTB – 9brrrrr!

Posted: March 25, 2013

With the ‘cross season done and dusted (there wasn’t much dust) it is time once again to turn to the mountain bike for a fix of two-wheeled fun. It’s how I got started in cycle sport and it is my favourite way to keep the fitness up over the summer months. It felt a very […]

CX – A Grand Finale

Posted: February 4, 2013

Hackney GT celebrate a big day out at Mistley. Rach made a cake It’s all over. My final race of the season* was an assault course of singletrack, mud and roots on a hillside in Essex – a mountain biker’s course, really, which is probably why a mountain biker won it. I clung on for […]
