First time VCMer

Today marked the start of my time with VC Moulin and i set the bar pretty high with a win in RD4 of the north east CX league, an absolute mudbath with some technical wooded singletrack sections made for a fantastic course. after slogging it out for 40 minutes with blackhawk bikes Alan Nixon on gradually reducing numbers of gears it came down to survival and after pulling away with two laps to go he threw in the towel. results and pics arent online yet but ill post some when i find them, look forward to meeting some fellow VCM riders on the double header in glasgow and ill see how i fare against the northern lot...

It was a tough course for sure... I ran a 1x10 set up for first time and couldn't get any traction.

You gonna be a cxne/neccl regular ??

Alan snapped his mech hanger but next week there will be the faster boys that were at the Inter champs so you'll have more to play with at the front.

thats the plan, would have been good having someone to thrash it out till the finish with.

Excellent... I doubt i'll manage to progress to the top 5 before this season is out so I will leave you to take on Tony Fawcett and Steven Ward alone :)
