Wirral 10k

Mandy and her mate Helen did their first ever 10k run. In a practice training run they did 10k in 1hour 15mins so it was a huge surprise to me when I saw Mandy trot home in 58 minutes and Helen come in a few minutes later and in her excitement just run right past all the medal/t-shirt people. It was an even bigger surprise for me to hear the name Alan Cross on the tannoy and I thought as if it was going to be the king of really was.

3 Peaks 2013

This is my fourth year at the 3 peaks cyclocross race and I've never raced it yet, probably never will, I'm not even sure if I'm strong enough and good enough to complete it. I go as the support dude for Yani. It's getting to be sort of routine in parts for us now, we set off early, yani needs a shit before we arrive, we park in the same sort of area, yani starts at the very back. This year the weather was sunny, bright, dry but pretty windy which made it slightly chilly. Yani rode awesome and didn't seem to struggle even after catching his bollocks into the chainstay bridge and also losing his garmin at some point. It is an incredible race, it is just so raw and untouched by over the top protocol. Yorkshire bred and raised, gnarly as fuck.
