I headed over to the 417 Project on the edge of Gloucester on a drizzly Sunday morning for the final round of the Schwable British 4X Series. The track which had been running well in the days running up to the event was running a little slower in practice & the continuing light rain would eventually turn the track into a slippery mess.
My moto's went ok with me getting some good starts but struggling with the slippery corners, so I was only able to make the B - final.
By the time of the final the track had become like an ice rink! With riders struggling to get past the 1st turn. It was hilarious to watch but not so good to race on.
In my B - final I once again got a good start but Alec Bell came past on the second straight as I exited the second straight his bike slid out & I regained the lead which I held to the finish.
This ment I was 5th on the day & I finished the series in 4th (& a British Cycling ranking of 3rd) in the Veteran category.
Thanks to all my sponsors for their support through out this season.
