Mountain Biking race (BUCS mtb XC Sport race) 1:23:00  17.7 km (4:41 / km) +370m 4:15 / km
BUCS cross country mountain bike Sport race (not the real Champs, the Europa league version). Birchall Golf Club, Chesterfield.
Did the race last year but was quite far down so wasn't expecting much although there was a smaller field. Average start but took a cheeky line around the first corner to move up a few. We had a good Bristol group together on the first hill but ran away on one of the muddy get-off-and-push climbs. Took the guy in second place at the top of the hill but the leader was well ahead and I never saw him again. Steady pace on the flat and descent not wanting to blow up and lose time so the last three laps were surprisingly consistent. Bristol got the first team prize.
