                    Hope wrist isn't too bad Steve. Myself , Oz, Donough and Terry took on the B race whilst Tara took on the ladies. No booty for any of us unfortunately. John D, Alfie and Niall Q were in the A's with the legend JD bagging the 50s prize. Short course today (Davy C was lapping in about 4 1/2 mins) with a couple of tough climbs. Great organisation by Orwell. And yes, good coffee by the GAP crew. Roll on Russborough next week.

                      Tough race with 10 laps and Mick Jordan putting me under pressure. Thanks Orwell for a well organised race and the encouragement by fellow Epicturians. Fairly dry too.

                        Well done folks. Definitely more of a climber's course. Mick was motoring on his new whip. Never seen beardy Terry after the start.

                          Well run race with savage course shorts laps made for a lot of trips back up the hill to punish the body, had great battle with Lloyd Moore from Orwell in the M60s had advantage of 15 seconds at end of first lap which Lloyd whittled away at till he passed me at the boards on the last lap to stay ahead by 2 seconds to the line roll on next sunday for a rematch

                            Well done everyone. That was a tough race alright - I nearly cried when they said 7 laps. Thanks for the support - Mick especially who cycled alongside me up the grassy slope of horror and Terry hollering at the boards. As Oz said - definitely a climbers course.

                            having said that - that's 2 cx in a row that I've managed to get a decent start - so happy with that part - just have to try to maintain that beyond 1 lap!!!

                            Cycle home was soooo good - tootled all the way.

                            Russborough next - and then I'm done.....

                              Great day for it. Great to see everyone there, and most of all everyone enjoying themselves. There was a smattering of Epic kids racing too, the Harrington and Meredith youth at least, maybe more. Smiles all round. My lad Darragh was stoked, though he wanted that U10 third place medal, just missed out with 4th, but I’m delighted to say it didn’t upset him too much. He’s loving it and can’t wait for Russborough. Despite giving my best I was lapped in B race. That hill while short was tough and for me real slow, with 42x32 it was a slog, but even on a good day and ‘fit’ dragging my ass up it would have been a real chore. But a great venue and a good course, maybe some more twisty turny sections and it would be better still! After the big climb up making the descent a little more technical and adding another he 90 seconds to the lap would have been great. That said huge thanks to all involved, it was very well run and very good.
