Eastern League Cyclocross, R2, 16 September 2018

I was feeling good going into the race and after a good warm up and practice laps I felt ready. I got a middle position in the second row on the grid and was looking forward to a good race. On the whistle my inability to clip in prevailed and I lost loads of places. I wasted lots of energy catching up so that I had nothing left to go any further up the pack. The 3 sets of stairs and the 2 sets of hurdles on every lap completely wiped me out and I managed 12th. With all the dismounting and running I feel like I should do some running training as I really suffered here. I will practice clipping in all week to ensure a good start in the future.
