The last race I did was way back in 2011. My friend Loz and I hadn't ridden much since so entering the Capital Punishment was an attempt at getting myself motivated to ride and train a bit more.

I was volunteered to do the first lap. By the time I got down to the start line the queue was already long. I just jumped on the rear rather than pushing in. I was about 2/3rds of the way back when we got the start gun. The run/jog was fine as there was no room for an all out sprint in my position anyway. It got a little more chaotic when we reached the first of the bikes. People were darting off to the side to find their bikes and bikes were trying to get onto the track. It was certainly an experience!

A few months back there were two teams from Nobmob going to the Mont. Greg was looking to make a third team and roped me in. I was a bit tentative as I have never done any form of MTB race and I was pretty new to the sport to be honest. I first got my bike around September 2006 from memory. Soon after I then broke my arm falling of my new bike so that put me out for the rest of 2006. So around came 2007 and I got back on the bike and was having great fun. However I never trained too much with perhaps a ride or two a week. This got worse in winter as I did not have lights for night riding.
