    Heading up to old castle on Sunday for a fix of cx. Anyone want a lift? Planing on leaving Dundrum at 10. Get there for the practice before the b race.

    Congratulations to Doris and Bren for making the podium. Terry and Mick both looked like they had good races - not sure where they ended up. The conditions were varied, i.e. soft, squelchy, muddy, and quagmire .

    Probably the worst performance I’ve had in a few years but I learnt loads (sometimes it’s better to run!).

    Back for more next week.

    My race manged to get around first lap about top 20 then just kept mucking away to take positions back
    Most important always learn something
    like it was a great idea to get studs onto the shoes really payed off yesterday
    having friends big thanks to Richard Conroy who kept me going with a clean bike every half lap what a game changer using 2 bike nearly feels like cheating thanks not sure I would have had the energy to have kept going with a mucked up bike
    would say there is a world shortage of rear mech ,hangers, bike washers this morning

    So now resting to get into the zone for next Sundays Round 2 of the cross of Kells

    Challenging indeed, ground to a halt about a third of a lap in. Stopped 2/3 times per lap to lighten the load after finding a pokey stick in the woods. Rookie mistake leaving bike #2 at home but managed to look after the bike I did bring and kept the rear mech on so happy with that.

    Well done to everyone who made it around!

    Well done Brendan, a very tough day and a second bike was needed. I'll have it ready next time!
