YVAA Multi-terrain GP at Cleckheaton

Many thanks to Spen for hosting the last event in the YVAA Multi-terrain series for 2019. Holmfirth had 11 Vets out with some excellent performances right through the field. I’ve definitely gone backwards since crashing out on the last race, lack of consistent training seems to have dropped me by a couple of minutes so that’s an incentive to train hard through the winter and hopefully be fitter for the beginning of next year’s series. Good to see new Vets trying out these races. Kevin Dessoy, M55 ran for the 1st time in these events (and overtook me about 11/2 miles from the finish on the Greenway!). He seemed to enjoy his first experience of the multi-terrain series and will hopefully be back to take part next year. Paul Girdlestone M45 also took part but was too far ahead of me to see him!
