  • Nice one!

  • I seem to have won some BC points 4 of them) this season so will not be gridded right at the back.

    My only goal is to not get pulled, assuming the 80% rule will be in force.

  • Is the race still 45 mins, or will it be an hour this time?

  • I think it’s a 40 minute race, but will check.

  • It is 40 minutes. I’ll treat it like a 30 minute race though.

  • That's what I was going to say! Then if you don't get lapped just hang on for grim death :0)

  • Have a good race tomorrow Andy :0)

  • Good luck Andy

  • Thanks, very trepidatious tonight.

    But it's just a race.

  • Good luck Andy

  • I didn’t die. I did do a comedy topple on the Kinesis Camber into the course netting. It’s surprisingly sturdy.

    My goal was not to get lapped. I got caught by the winner about 300 metres before the finish line, then Paul Oldham passed me with 200 to go. The third place fella was held off though.

    Really challenging course, it was drying all the time so you never quite knew what to expect on most of the course. The middle third of the lap was brutal, really challenging technically and all the on/off transitions in sticky mud gummed up my pedals and my cleats.

    My attendance at the Nationals will either be to watch or help out.

  • Good work Andy

  • Chapeau

  • 63rd out of 85. A bit disappointed to be beaten by a couple of London League regulars who I normally have the measure of, but bashing my left thigh up 12 days beforehand isn't ideal prep.

    Results are here.

  • Reprezenting. Great work.

  • I am out of Frylands. George's carer seems to have sacked us off, not answering calls or returning texts.

    I can do Somerhill tho as it's on a Saturday 😊

  • Sorry to hear that Sam.

  • I imagine you are sat at home this morning @Sam thinking “I’m glad I’m not riding at Frylands today...”

  • Ha ha. Does look pretty miserable out there. Have a good one.

  • Mud check please.

  • Not as bad as last year but still pretty bad. This is the aftermath of the bike wash.

  • Provisionally 19th, although they have me as a lap down which I wasn’t. 5 laps, took ages.

  • Westfield was better......

  • Wasn’t it full of cunts?

  • I dunno, we saw Santa at 10ish, went to some swings and stuff, wagamama, Zara, home. The only cunt was me.
