Video of Vets race at National Trophy 4 Milton Keynes

 National Series Cyclocross at Milton KeynesGreat day today up at sunny Milton Keynes. Forget Strictly Come Dancing, this was Strictly Come Cyclocross.Amazing field in the senior race with National Champion Ian Field coming back for a race in the UK having raced on the continent for most of the season. Series Leader Paul Oldham, plus a host of others. All the races had riders from all over the country, so a really top field. We were nervous.

Martin Winter raced in the Vets 40+ race, I was in the 50+ race, Sol raced in the ladies race and Michael Miach was in the Senior main race, and George was in the pits, and did a fine job……

We all finished, none of us was last, and we did the club proud.

Very tough course in the MK Bowl. Lots of steep. twisty, exhausting climbs and tough, tricky off camber bends and one particularly nerve wracking downhill bend.

It was a great experience racing at National level, and shows we are developing a broad competitive squad in CX this year. Next week the Southern Championships at Oxford, and then the business end of the Central League season with the TCC race at Hillingdon.

Sol, Martin and I have entered the Nationals in Derby in Jan, so we are looking to race as much and as hard as we can before then. Cross is a great crack, we love it.
