DirtRun Cross Duathlon. 1st.

               Sunday saw the penultimate race in my winter season at the DirtRun Cross Duathlon in Worcestershire at the Top Barn outdoor activity centre. I had another good day and as I lead away from the start I decided to really push it as hard as I could to get a great training session in and see how much I could win by.I know that must sound cocky but sometimes it's the way. i want to make sure the race is as hard for me as it is for the person who comes last as we're all out there trying our best. it's the only way. In the end I won by over 8 minutes from second place over a big field, many of whom were doing their first ever Cross Du so it was a really encouraging day for the sport as well as personally  for my form.     The course was great fun, with a really steep and technical wooded trail that we had to run and ride and I loved every minute of it. two weeks to go and then it's my final race of the winter season, the Mud and Mayhem at Thetford forest. Its a brilliant race that I always look forward to. If you haven't done it before then you should. Thetford Forest is a great place to ride and the Go Beyond team know how to put on a really slick race at a great price. Have a look here:
