Not really. Round 2 of the Welsh XC Series was held on a nice traditional course overlooking the Royal Welsh Showgrounds in Builth. Nice in a none-too demanding kind of way: a spectator friendly two leaf clover layout with no mega hills :) and no real tech :(
Result was a little disappointing considering the positive signs in the lead up: my vanity barometer showed an increasing number of visible (not varicose!) veins in the legs plus, since Christmas, I have shed the equivalent to approximately 16 of these puppies (accessories not included).
Thanks to Amy for putting us up for the weekend, the lairy spectators and JBs beard trimmer for giving my legs the more manly, semi-shaven look.
