Mud, sweat and gears, south-east and eastern championships

After a heavy week of training, I wasn’t too sure how my legs were going to be feeling going into the race.

Turning up, another flat course, but very quick and flowing single track, I was looking forward to getting going, especially with a long tarmac/gravel start before any single track.

I hit it hard from the start, leading out, and went with it. I broke away, with a small gap over Daniel Preece (Army cycling) and kept pushing.
The course was flowing, legs and lungs were good, and I was in my rhythm. I managed to build on the lead over the 5 laps, having a surprising solo race. 
Very happy to get my first top step of the podium, especially at a regional championship.

Next up Cannock chase for the next round of British XC series
