Bridgend xc (gwent league) – Stacey


Not only was it the East Wales xc champs it was also the final selection race for the Welsh masters event in November. Having finished 2nd in the first selection race at Caernarfon, I had a reasonable chance of making the team. I’d missed the second one at Swansea through illness so had to make this one count, However I had a terrible run, no go in my legs at all, and finished way down in 69th place. Even on a good day I would have only finished in the thirties such was the level of competition.
I finished 3rd in my age group in the East Wales race, but 7th in the overall race. Not good enough to gain selection this year. Not the best of days to struggle!!
