The last week end was exeptional, I had do my first race in UK on the national trophy round 2 neer Exeter. Saturday I had leave nerville to take a plane at Charles de Gaulle airport directly to Exeter. Only half past one hour fligth!
The organisation team of Graham Edwards was very welcoming with me. I'm staying with Nick, a very nice local cyclist, all the afternoon to eat something, training on road and circuit and he drove me on the house of Niel and Sue for the nigth. They are so nice too!!! Sue do coking very good and my room was very beautiful... I had past a vry good evening and nigth.
Sunday the weather was cloudy! We are going to the race with my new family. I can warm up on the "turbo" of an other local cyclist: Andy, a good cyclocrossman in veteran. He was my mechanic with miel for my race.
The race was very beautiful, fast and slippery but not very muddy! At the beginning I was in the first peloton with the british top riders and the amator champion of belgium, david Willensem. After 2 laps I prefer leave the other riders and after one fast lap David Willensem became on me. We stay always together and the final lap is very fast. he juste take a little advantage on the finish and I'm 2rd and very happy. I had a good legs in this race.
With the plane I'm in my house before 9 o'clock and i'm very happy to this week end: I have meet a lot of very nice people, a beautiful country and I have doing a good race! I hope I can return on Devon for an other cyclocross race or to do mountainbike.
Thanks again for Graham Edwards, Niel and Sue, Nick, Andy and all the team of organisation for this fantastic weekend!!!
