Not sure if this is right section but today im competed in my first race! It was a mountain bike race over cannock chase (run and ride winter classic). It was a lung killer! The trails were like butter and zapped. 2 laps of a nice route but it was hard work and didnt think id make it after one lap, the smell of the burger bar was rather inviting. But I continued to spin the legs and got through it. I raced in the first timers section and came 43/60 not to bad really. But it was fun!
