PNP Cycling Club put on a great day today at the 2nd round of the PNP Spring XC Series as well as the PNP Club Championships. The cross country track was pretty awesome with a great rooty downhill. It was super slippery due to the 2 days of rain prior to the event.
I had an average start in the cross country and had to pass a rider before being able to put down the pressure and hold a decent pace. By this time, the two lead riders had already opened a gap and I was unable to catch them throughout the rest of the race. Solid effort from Jack and Eden which left me in third place.
The Super D was great fun and a bit slippery in places. Went pretty hard and had a lot of fun.
As soon as I started the criterium, I could tell the legs were empty and I felt sick too! I think it was probably due to the cross country in the morning. Came away with another third and I'm happy with that.
Overall I came away with a third place medal. I am stoked with that effort due to the chest issues I have had throughout winter.
Well done Phillippa on your first gold medal today!
Thanks to iRide and Specialized New Zealand for supporting me with my racing and training.
