I've seen the photos... you're an absolute madman Mr Pope!!!

Seriously, though, that is one properly impressive performance. Chapeau!

London CX league round 13

Post  Shane P on Wed Jan 23, 2013 9:57 am

A great race last Sunday in blizzard conditions. Mixed circuit with loose snow, hard packed grippy stuff, hard packed slippy stuff and mud to keep us on our toes or in many cases our arses.

Slow start meant I had to do a kamikaze blat down the outside of the bunch after the start to get back up into better riders but still got caught up in the first lap train through the slow tree hairpin sections. After that though I duelled a few riders before dropping them and generally picked off those ahead all the way home. I fell many times but pleased with handling skills overall.

I finished 20th out of 62 finishers so very happy, only a handful behind some strong crawley wheelers. With a better start and fewer hold ups I might have stayed in contact with those guys. Great way to finish the season, setting me up for more points, my 2nd cat back and shortly the Perfs. May even finish a race in P1 this year but won't get carried away just yet.
