Day whatever...lost track. Mo creeping towards being slightly more full...dunno, seems the other competitors are leaving the chase. I may win by default. Who knows?

Cross double header this week end. Pics on flickr, scottish cyclocross. Saturday had us ploughing a furrow in Cowdenbeath for the Stephen Lyle memorial cross. Windy, grassy, mud. Hard fought racing. VC-Moulin has some write ups, Anja took the ladies win, Andy charging hard in the men's, and i did ok, taking a scalp or two on the penultimate lap. Pleased with the underlying strength. Or maybe i can just plough better than most. Who knows?

Sunday had us in Glenrothes, wind low, dry fast fast fast course. A long straight and a brutal stairs/run up takes its toll, and the legs were leaden after yesterday. Even so, managed to get round. Anja won again, ahead of a hard charging elieen roe. A real battle royal. After peebles, i lie in 23rd overall. A little dissapointing, but i got my first call up in glenrothes and went balls-out for the hole shot, but ended in around 7th. 38:18 isnt great for sprinting on wet grass! Marty and i have some plans afoot for the series final, apart from the mo's.

Stay tuned...

Congrats on the cross overall! Sounds like invigorating conditions.

what do you mean you might win by default? What about the late charge from the man from Mull who had a start in the mo competition?
