First Time at Singleton

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

After a disappointing 2nd round at Awaba I'd spent 2 weeks preparing for this event and it made a real difference. Last time finished 28th from 33 this time 15th from 31 (C grade). This was my first ever time at Singleton.

Track was awesome, super dry and quick. Although there are no real climbs I was always on the gas so no chance for a breather. My heart rate average was 87%... Hopefully more time on the bike will help bring this number down.

Super happy Eye-wink

I hadn't prepared very well for this event having not ridden my bike or done any form of fitness for the 4 weeks prior to the event (partly due to the rain and partly due to a neck injury after an OTBs earlier in the year). With this in mind I deliberately started at only 80% work rate knowing that I’d struggle towards the end. In true form, I lost nearly 2 minutes on the final lap as I hit the ‘wall’ Sad

HMBA XC Round 6 - Awaba

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

First time racing at Awaba and in the HMBA XC series. Haven't ridden much since April due to both the rain and injury. The HR was racing averaging at 163 bpm and I felt every beat! Hope to get some more K's under the belt so that I can improve my position next time round.

Thoroughly enjoyed the track and had an awesome time hanging onto to the back of a few riders who managed to get away towards the end Eye-wink
