Today was the a day for CX bikes on the Belgie, as the birthday boy Pikey demonstrated best when he fishtailed his road bike up the single track climb up to Pony club.

The CX protagonist was Bing, he was hard up the cobbled Ivanhoe alleys, and again up the afoer mentioned single track climb. I did what I could to stay near him, but always had a sense that at any second he could choose to ride away.

The high heart rate bits aren't what stick most with me from today though. What sticks was the tiny, greasy, singletrack descent after they alleys. Bing hit it first and though I was on his wheel at the start, he had comprehensively gapped me by the bottom. Adding this question about line choice/over braking/cornering ability to concerns about my fitness, it paints a painful picture of what is to come at DDCX this Saturday.
