Alice has been getting cross

Round 4 – Hog Hill

Saturday 29th September At last a chance to test out my super new cross bike, lovingly built by Barna, formerly raced by Gabby Day (and also Jules). The week previous to the race I had a practice at learning to dismount/remount at speed whilst still moving and also had a tentative ride on the BMX pump track….this wasn’t quite as much practice as I would have liked before going straight into an off-road race but hey-ho its all fun. ed My start was cautious which put me behind a lot of the men (veterans, youth and women all race together) but as I gained confidence i also gained speed and slowly worked my way up the field. After surviving an entanglement with the plastic fence tape (I had a section of red and white tape trailing me for a lap or so) and a battle for position with Fran I managed to pull off third place.

Round 5 – Herne Hill

Sunday 6th October The velodrome is literally just down hill from me so this was a very casual start for me as I only had to leave early enough to sign on and get a few practice laps in. The course was very loose and gravelly, better suited to an MTB than a cyclo-cross bike. Here’s a video; Video by John
