Having not raced for the last few seasons I decided that I would have a crack at this years Cyclocross. I had never raced Nationally in this discipline so there was going to be a challenge gaining the skills and the particular fitness required for this event. In preparation I planned to race as many of the local CXNE events to gain some experience. I race in the U14 category which is a combined race with the U16 category. Typically there are around 40 competitors in the race across both categories.
Being able to look back on this season has given me ample opportunity to observe the highs and lows that I have been through. This varied from having my very first race win on New Year`s Eve to being off the bike for 3 weeks with flu in February.
