Alex Watkins New Years Day Cx Fun Race Newbury.

New Years Day Cx Fun Race Newbury.

It was a last minute decision to enter Newbury this morning for there New Year’s Day CX race with fancy dress as an option and a hair of the dog shot when you finished with a foam cannon near the finish which made light entertainment for the growing number of spectators.

The race was only 30 minutes long with vets/ Seniors / Women & juniors put into one race.

I started from the second row today as instructed made a good start and got away from the chaos behind in the first tight twisty section. I was left in a group of 4 from the majority of the race Julian Mann from VCVenta & and two chaps from banjo cycles after 2 laps Julian had a puncture and had to abandon the race which left me at the front of the pack with the two banjo boys hot on my heels.

As the race progressed further I found myself on my own and finishing the race in 10th position.

Moving on to Sunday’s race at Southampton I feel confident and am looking forward to what looks to be a mud bath!
