    Congrats to John and Terry - not sure how Harry did but he was well in it on lap one of his race. Very heavy course in places and quick in others but overall it was deadly - a real test of skill, fitness and endurance. Huge thanks to Gary and Aaron in the pits - they put in a lot of work to make sure that we were kept going. Not really sure about my own race. there were good bits and poor bits; I burped the rear tyre at one point which allowed the guys that I was racing to pull away on my second last lap. I didn't do enough to stay in front go Robin (as in I didn't do enough to not get lapped :-)) so I finished -1 Lap. I have to say that it was an amazing event; not just great racing. Now, I'm off to eat and sleep. Now that the CX season is finished I think I'll take a week off before the XC training begins...

    In the Junior race we had Harry who gave great account of himself finishing 6th in a field which he and the rest of the junior riders would have decimated most of other riders in all the other senior races.

    On behave of all the rider need to say a huge thanks to the pit workers who volunteered for a tough day of tension being covered in muck,being frozen,bike washing ,swapping and looking after all the riders, plus shouting encouragement thanks.
    Garry his son Aaron and friend,Trevoir, Harry,Alife,Keith apoligies for anybody I have missed.

    I think Terry covered just about everything. Great riding by the club members on a course that was brutally hard. I must say the organisation and the atmosphere was class.
    I had Mick Jordan up my arse for most of the race , so I suffered a little to keep ahead. Des Woods was flying as usual. Looking at the lap times, Colm put in some fast laps, but was up against the best.
    Delighted with silver and a good way to start the season...or end the season!! not sure which .
