Okeford Hill Bikepark Winter Series 2 2017

July 29, 2017


On arrival It was clearly going to be the ultimate slopfest. As the riders precariously walked down the trail it all became very real. "I can't walk how am I gonna ride it?"


As the practice runs were completed my tally of crashes grew rapidly. I couldn't manage a clean run no matter what.


Race runs soon come round, I was nervous as ever and hungry for a win but I just did not feel the usual buzz...



Well Race Run 1 was a disaster on the top section of track which feature some table jumps the wind caught me in the air and made me land awkwardly resulting in a crash. I got up and went to carry on but my mudguard had broken and jamming my front wheel, I made it to the fireroad and decided it would be best to stop.


I picked up some hot food from the cafe and sat down and tried to make sense of what just happened and how i could pull it back.


Run 2, I was calm and composed, I just had to keep it clean. All went well apart from a tight rooty switchback which caused me to put my foot out and slow down. I trundled on, hoping, skipping and sprinting to the finish. 


I walked towards the tent just hoping I would see that coveted "1" next to my name. Oh well it was a 2 and in fact i couldn't have been happier for the guy who won, he was overjoyed!
