See what our team member Ben got up to in June.
June brought about a slightly more relaxed month of racing allowing for more training time at the 417 bike park and some of its new sections; varied weather gave a good range of scenarios to practise in, especially the wet clay!
Anna made sure our legs got a good workout in the gym - there's a video on the Flyup page where you can see some of the attempts!
Following the first MIJ Downhill race at The Forest Of Dean where I came 10th it was round 2, racing on sheepskull meant that there was a fair bit of pedalling but the dusty conditions made it easier, I wish I'd done it on the Enduro bike now but I managed 8th with no time improvement on my second run.
Round 3 is coming up at the start of July which I hope to improve my ranking on, with a bit of luck I should manage a good overall ranking too.
For me it's now a relaxing time in Greece before a quick uplift day before the race weekend to get my legs working again!
