off camber xc series

We dropped in to the second round of the off camber cycles xc series series this weekend, It was round 2 and a line up of 56 riders in the 19+ age cat set off around a great xc loop with lots of single track and flowing berms it has to be one of the best xc tracks i have raced on ever, After my pre race loop we got to the start just before the race kicked off so we were at the back, soon down the main tarmac track i moved passed a few riders and we hit the main climb, i stomped past more riders and could now see the lead group, sadly the pack had split and i was heading the second group by time we got through the first singletrack section, By lap 2 i was feeling my early effort and with a few riders on my heals i push on, But i failed to see a tape and got back on track having lost 2 spots and another rider was on me, by the end of the lap he went passed as well, we regrouped and past all 3 by time we were up the first climb and set off to hunt more riders down but the gap was not coming down and we came in a solid 9th. A great day out at the races and a welcome return to some xc for me, i hope to do a few more later in the series.
A big thanks to all at Off Camber cycles for putting on the event.
