I woke up this morning looking forward to the race and I also woke up suprisingly early as Annie was making a lot of noise. I think she was wanted me to say happy birthday to her haha!
We drove down to the race and got there quite early so we started to get ready and sign on. The weather was drying up nicely so was looking forward to getting stuck into racing! As we lined up I heard that it was a hilly corse but I definately didnt expect it to be as hilly as it was!
After the first lap i was already finding it hard and it was so hummid but around the midway point it absolutly hammered it down. I have never seen rain so bad and this is no exageration! The race was savage doing 3 hills every lap and doing that 14 times takes it out of your legs! It was coming towards the end of the race and I had ajusted to the faster pace over in belgium and was starting to feel my legs come around!
I was coming into the last corner and i wasnt in that good a position so I just went for it with around 400m to go, so by the time i got to the line I was nailed. I wass gald to have finished that race it was SAVAGE! To top it off, I finished 10th, which is a great result in my first set of races in Belgium.
Anyway I hope Annie had a lovely birthday doing this race and taking me back to Calais to go home
Cheers Annie……………..celebrate tomorrow
