Spring Series Races
So i keep threatening to get back and try again at this XC racing lark and once again i'm read to throw myself in there and have a pop.
So, Crosshair and myself are entering the 'fun' catagory on the 17th. 2 laps.
I believe this is where i did my first 3 lap event a while back... pretty good course with a steep short climb in there and a longer piece of fireroad, but mostly nice singletrack stuff
I'm setting myself an ideal goal of finishing inside the top 50%... I don't know yet how optimistic that is....
Going to try a slightly different plan from the start on this, usually i take it a little easy, lining up at the back of the grid, let a few people go, get some space and settle in. However i recall this has a terrible bottleneck early on (150m from start line) which is into the singletrack. So going to try and blast out as my recovery times are good so should be able to settle down by the time we get through it.
training is going really well.
