Final race in the Summit series...Bringing home the silverware

Lotts wood was the wettest its been all Summer, making for a few sketchy moments - including a pedal in the knee cap (user error).

Dickie "The mountain goat" pulled me round most of the first lap, only to suffer the first of several mechanicals (Sssi, insert single speed joke here) which slowed his progress.

I took up his mantle and locked in on the 2nd place rider, the single speed did a sterling effort, dragging me round in 3rd place on the night - and securing 3rd place overall :)

Unexpectedly, I received silverware in the awards afterwards, unfortunately it says "Male Fun" on it, which makes me sound a lot gayer than I actually am.

Rich's consolation prize was winning a Summit base layer in the prize draw

Think Rich and I agree that it is a great race series to do - defo need more E172 representation next year - I know you guys love a bit of Male fun....
