Oli at National champs
Last weekend I took part in the UK National Champs near Reading. It would be my 14th Senior National Champs and with a record of 5wins and 12 podiums so far I was hoping to make it 6 wins and definitely make it 13 podiums.
The course was flat with long sections of winding singletrail, so the complete opposite of what i like, but after a few road races there was some power in my legs.
I got a great start and was so relieved by this fact that I got a bit carried away and proceeded to smash the first lap. Then on lap 2 when race favorite Liam Killeen started flexing his muscles I found myself
in a bit of trouble. The next 3 laps were not fun at all as I tried to limit my losses whilst my legs came round, which they did with two laps to go and i was able to fight back from 5th to a podium 3rd spot.
Next event up is the Chain Reaction Marathon on August 5th
Thanks for the support
