Blenheim 'cross
































































Check list:

- Bambi legs

- Feeling nauseous

- Gibbering inanely

- going an odd puce colour

- crust of gel and drool in beard


All ticked! It wasn't cold enough and only moderately wet, though. A glamorous setting for the first cross of the year, all the same.

Nervous on the start line. I got gridded (no idea why, but it helped get a decent start). Number 13 mounted right way up to confuse the gods-of-luck. All the usual small battles that mean so much for an hour then disappear just as quickly. Did better than expected - always good. A lot of fun and a lot of pain, who'd a thunk it.

More this weekend...

I managed to beat 14 people in round 3 of the NW league. Shame about the 95 people in front of me :)
