Biking Blitz – Matt Seebach wins Baggy Shorts Category (1 full lap)
Race Report by David Furlong, 2nd February 2014
We set off in Brian’s Venga Bus, trailer in tow, loaded up for action. Lots of talk of ass-whuppin etc… and Little Dave in the back suckin on his energy potion aka some 99c Aldi rice yoke. Brian Mc in the zone behind his dark shades giving nothing away, Tully all focused and Nigel with his big happy smile
We arrived and parked in the bestest muckiest spot, met our fellow travellers Ciara, Lorraine and Miron. Off to the start, heart attack city. DC was gone like the hottest of snots, the rice potion working a treat. Next Brian mC, then Tully and me.
Great close racing,for me I gradually reeled my man in and snook past him. DC and Mc were long gone. Deadly buzz of tight racing, having not done any mtb racing in 2013 it was great to be back!
In the Baggy Shorts, Nigel and Miron were a few mins apart, and Ciara on her debut performing admirably. Unfortunately Lorraine was caught out by mechanicals. But the biggest news was new member Mat Seebach taking the win! And local lady Sinead Walsh taking 2nd in the Ladies.
Thanks to Brian for driving and allowing us to wreck his van and my fellow travellers and clubmates for a deadly day out. Looking forward to the season ahead!
Now off for the wine and cheese…
