Rapha SuperCross October 27th Misterton Hall

It was Misterton Madness at the weekend and with the professionals doing the judging I had no excuse not to have a go at my first cyclocross race.   I entered the Go Cross fun race.

After the Le Man style start,

I soon found the mysterious Wall of Foam,

Riding the course blind, without a warm-up lap, was not a good idea as the vertical planks that needed to be negotiated took me by surprise.

Taking the Tequila shortcut was another silly idea.  As many of you know I don’t drink, so having my shot of alcohol in over 25 years, did not help.

Overall it was a fun race with lots of spectators heckling us.  The whole day had a great atmosphere and I would recommend it.

CATS MBC were in the prizes.   Andy Searcy rode the “proper race” and won “Highest Place Andrew” prize!
