Race results: third place better than last…

I raced in the PNP Makara Enduro at the weekend. It was a great day for it, sunny, dry and hot.

I placed third in the senior men’s category. By all account third was not bad, although I have to qualify there were only 7 riders in my category (there were about 70 riders overall)

Each lap is hard out 6-8 minutes of riding, ‘pedaling like you stole it‘!

My first lap went pretty well, although the dry tracks meant that there was no traction around the corners and there were a couple of tight turns where I messed up a bit.

The second lap was the same course and I was fairly consistent, the third was a slightly longer lap with loads more pedaling, where fitness really comes into your success – that was probably my worst lap.

You have to be in it to win it.

So, a good result overall but loads of room for improvement and lots of things to work on for my next race!

Peace out.
