After my first years racing in the Open category and a few good results, this year I made the step up to the Sport category. The first race of the season was at Rendlesham Forest. Now, only having 26" wheels this year, which I thought would be a big problem against all the 29ers, and despite being my first year in Sport, my target for the season was an ambitious top 20. Apart from my training partners not finishing the race - Nick Hayden having a mechanical and Gavin Wheeler spending the afternoon in the ambulance - for me the race went better than expected and I met my season target in my first race coming a respectable 20th!

In all honesty, I wasn't looking forward to this one - last year the course was tricky with a few very technical elements and also some steep climbs. To top it off I wasn't 100% fit, having suffered from a cough and cold all week, and although much better than I was at the beginning of the week, I was still lacking energy and still had the remains of a cough. I hate making excuses!

Oh my God, the forks are so good with the kit in! It has transformed the bike into a real race bike. I'm not looking for grip anymore, just the quickest line. I can pump the whoops and gain speed. I can't think there is a quicker bike for my local trails than what I have with this kit in the forks.

Chain-L chain lube


Chain-L claim that it is designed with three things in mind: "Lubrication, lubrication, and lubrication." They make no claims towards environmental leanings, they simply tried to make the very best chain lube they possibly could. And in my mind, they have.

I have to admit to being a bit remiss in my punctuality with these and now I have three to write up at once! Over the last week I raced at the Midlands XC rounds 1 and 2 (an XCE followed by an XCO) and then raced at Mallory Park (RR) on Tuesday evening. Happily I pulled some great results out for the team - 2nd at the XCE and 1st at the road race!

Second on the podium at the XCE
