Angus in the medals

Angus came 3rd today in the Under 10s race at Ilkley Cyclo Cross. What made it so special is that it was a relatively large field and he had to fight for it. Realizing he was in with a wiff of the podium after he made the first corner in the top 10 or so, he picked his way through and held onto 3rd place for the 2nd final lap, digging deep. He was so delighted, absolutely buzzing. He won a bottle and a Buff and had his name called out on the loud speaker when he received his prize. Proud Dad did not do so well in the veterans, he broke his bike on the last lap, but nonetheless finished with a smile. Happy day in the frost and sun.
