Race Report: Bellingham Show
Not a massive amount to say about this one, really. A BS race, around 6km with 220m vert. Led the pack during the initial loop of the showground but, as soon as we headed through the gate and onto the fell, Will Robson of North Shields Poly took the lead, going on to win the race comfortably. My legs felt incredibly wobbly on the initial climb, and I struggled over the rough ground, losing quite a few places; some of these I managed to claw back on the more runnable second half of the race, but in the end I only managed 7th place. Never mind; it was a fun afternoon out and, if nothing else, it gives me room to improve next year.
