Grindleford fell race, 2nd.
1st race since early Feb, so happy to be, sort of, in one piece to start a race again. Absolutely no speed, or climbing ability but very much enjoyed racing and having to work hard from 5th to 3rd up the hill and then catching and being re-caught by Charlie until he binned a few seconds at the turn in Longshaw ignoring the marshals! Enjoyed the muddy descent of Padley Gorge and tried to muster some flat speed back along the river. Steve Franklin was a country mile ahead, but I managed to get a small gap to Charlie at the finish. I very much enjoyed racing in the sun and glad I didn’t drown in the river.
