The new CB3 Design team jersey was unceremoniously unveiled at the Scottish Enduro Series (mountain bike) race at Ae Forest last weekend. Feeling rather conspicuous in the fetching blue strip rather than my usual ‘architect’s black’ this was my third race of the new season. The sun came out to greet us and a great weekend was had by all. Sun, dusty tracks, good company and two days on the bike – what’s not to like!
Unfortunately the kit didn’t boost my skill levels (and unfortunately the number board is a reflection on surname rather than ranking!) but I was pleased to be back on the bike and sitting just outside the top twenty in category after an injury a couple of weeks previous.
I’m now looking forward to May when the Enduro World Series visits Peebles’ Tweedlove Festival and we race alongside the worlds best on local tracks. The Festival is one of the highlights of the Peebles calendar and we would encourage anyone with an interest in cycling in any form to have a look at the programme and come along to the events. Fingers crossed for more sun and dry trails!
