Struggled but I was riding with a cold.
Enjoyed it though, especially the corkscrew. Pulled out after 3 laps as I was getting slower and slower..... third lap was around 39mins!
Damm you Tony, one place in front of me (Darren). I did a quicker first lap then the world ended so you over took me at some point on the second one heh. I hope for the sake of humanity you weren't the tall bloke with toe clips (oh dear heh) who over took me as we briefly came out onto that big hill that was the start last spring but then it turn off left into single track again half way up, bit of downhill then over that mound where they had put a cover down?
I tried a different tactic this time of going with the leaders at the start, this lasted for about 1.5 miles when I thought I should probably get my heart rate back under 200 lol, averaged at 193 in the end!
sounds like he just went too slow on the first lap, should be in a difference class if hes that much quicker heh!
