    Tomorrows the day, @dan_bo and @I like Skol are going to the races - www.britishcycling.org.uk/events/details/167789/Harry-Middleton-CC-CX---North-West-Cyclo-Cross-League

    Photographs might be a bit of a problem as we are a bit short on groupies to catch any fast action shots,
    but there will be a post-race debrief once the mud, sweat & tears have been washed off :cheers:
    Just in case anyone might be there to see us, we will be in the Vet Men's race at 13.30hrs (I know, neither of us looks a day over 35, but there you go!) :laugh:

    Wish us luck :hyper:

    Can't wait for this, first time cycle racing for me since my very, very early 20's (so not that long ago really :whistle:).

    Have fitted a brand new set of 35mm CX tyres to my GT grade carbon and feel about as ready as I'll ever be. Hoping for a reasonable place as I do feel reasonably fit at the moment.

    Just realised @Kestevan of this forum likes the odd CX race. Short notice I know but do you fancy bringing your Grade over for some fun tomorrow, I know you like it rough and dirty :eek:

    That kid had it easy. It was horrendous today and everyone I talked to said it was the worst conditions they had ever raced in! Great start to my racing career.....
    Garmin is telling me I rode for 43 minutes and covered 4.25 miles, but I forgot to switch off the auto pause function so not sure how accurate that is? I'm pretty sure I was travelling faster than 6mph :whistle:
    Besides all that, it was ACE and I want to do it again, bike worked well, my MTB skills gained me a fair few places and I didn't fall off. Not an embarrassing debute really :okay:

    That is a new one, I rode cross on and off for over 30 years and never had that excuse.

    Seems to be more down to the parkies these days. They get jittery when it gets very wet. Shame but it's the way it is at the moment.
