Surrey XC League #1 - Richmond Park
Started out pretty quick just behind the front. Felt comfortable here but climbing back up towards Sidmouth Wood Kevin Quinn (SLH) stormed off and I couldn't get onto the back on the chase group, sitting about 10 metres off the back of them. On the second lap, Phil Seassman (KEN) got a clear gap for second place, Jon Pepper (RAN) was in third, and I was left battling Luke Caldwell (DMV) for fourth.
We swapped the lead a few times but neither of us ever made a gap until the final corner where my sprint finish just proved to be fractionally stronger.
Ranelagh probably third in this fixture which is a great start to the season.
Good hit out for me, felt very solid and happy with the pace I was at.
