NDCXL Round 10, Holme Pierrepont

Exiting the bombhole - probably too steep to walk up 
 Well, that was my favourite race of the league so far...

* Awesome weather.
* Lots of fast bits
* Damp under tyre, so no mudfest
* Some tricky sections too

Still only got 51st out of 150odd, so top 1/3rd.

That was what a race is all about - a brilliant hour.
I'd not done any hard cycling all week apart from easy cycles to work everyday, but to be honest I felt better for a break from hard training. I was even looking for to doing a final final lap only to be lapped by the winner (Dan Booth) a few hundred metres before the finish line.

Carnage going round the bombhole area !
