Otterspool Park Cyclocross NWCCA Round 7 – 30th October 2010

Otterspool Park - Closed Cafe

The Lune RCC Mafia, as Simon Wilson described it on the start line, was out in force on Saturday: Jack Pullar (Herbalife-Wheelbase), Ella Sadler-Andrews (Horizon Fitness), David Switzer and I. 

Excellent course. The roots caused me quite a lot of problems. I think every single root on the course interacted at one point or another with my tyres with some comic effect. 

I enjoyed the start. To my surprise, I ended up past the 1st corner at about 20th position. New sensation. Thankfully normal service resumed. My rolling mounts, which I thought were starting to click in training, completely deserted me during the race. So, I finished around mid table. A lot of room for improvement.

Oh and the famed cobbled climb was fab!

The results are now out: http://www.nwcca.org.uk/2010/11/east-liverpool-wheelers-cross-30-oct-2010-res…

I am not sure if any pictures from the race have been published on the interwebs. If you come across any, please let me know 🙂
