Skipton DH Mates Race Jan 22nd
 
The day started dull and wet but soon picked up when the clock started ticking. The track started right at the top of Skipton moor where you ploughed over a small rock garden into a grassy track leading to what would usually be a river. After a sketchy descent it was all power down as you pedal along a fire road to the beginning of the woods. A loose right hand corner had to be taken to drop down into the woods which led into a crazy rock garden followed by one last sprint to the finish.We had two race runs and a mass start, I finished 2nd in the race runs but unfortunately took a tumble over the bars trying to overtake another racer therefore finished 6th.The day was great with a friendly atmosphere and after allot of help from Stef, Dave and Will the timing went smoothly. And thanks to my mate Jack Hirst for the pictures.
