Mud glorious mud cx has arrived
Well Southampton didn’t let the cx racers down yet again it proved it was the mudfest of old.
Then Lindys race got off to a cracking start with lindy whizzing off the front alas it didn’t last long and the mud and terrain took its toll on lindy slowly slippy backwards in the field (I blame it o the previous night pre race partying) :=)
The race was very tough for pete and Lindy and the competition was tough for both lindy and Peter mind you they seemed to be enjoying the races and the cheering from myself and John Ellis and Alex Watkins family.
Peter for managed to get 52nd place Gary Barlow reading cc won the race
Lindy battled on and managed to get 8th overall and 5th senior over all race was won by Claire Smith from cotswold veldrijden
The next race saw Alex and David racing in the senior race and what a great race that was Alex seemed to get his mojo back and got a superb start.
David also got of to a reasonable start as well but also the mud and circuit also hampered progress
Alex had managed to catch on to a group of faster riders and was taking advantage of it and managed to pull away and gain places Alex raced in the top 20pretty much most of the race and finished the race and a superb sprint for the line
Alex is on the left but was pipped on the line by thom Hayward to get 17th place which was brilliant considering some. Of the other riders behind Dave also did well and managed to get 26th place which was considering the course and how tough it was later in the day a great effort the over all race was won by Adrian Lansley from Pedal on
Below is Alex at the end of the race fully exasperated after so much effort great result Alex
