Mud and Mayhem Cross Duathlon, Swinley Forest, 2nd

           Last year I was beaten by my buddy Cedric Lassonde. This year I was beaten by my buddy Cedric Lassonde.  Doh! In fact, I've never beaten Cedric in the 3 times I've raced with him so I'll have to work on it! He is super fast on the mtb and we're fairly well matched on the run.  I won't bore you with the details but I had to post the fastest final run split in order to make up places and get back into 2nd having missed a turn on the bike leg. Some dastardly mountain bikers had decided to take home course arrows as souvenirs you see.
I do hope they don't trip and fall onto the pointy bit on their way home.        ;-)

Anyway, I felt like a sack of spanners on the bike and a Gazzelle on the final run such is the unpredictable nature of the human body....   Next up, the Essex Cross Du and then the brand new Black Park Du. Hope to see some of you there!
