I first tried the Brass Monkeys XC races two years ago. After a year off I jumped straight back into it. More information on the event can be found at their website here: http://meridabrassmonkeys.com/
Round 1 – Minley Manor 23rd November 2014.
It was a very wet and muddy round 1 with very little traction. It was great however to be back out attempting a race after a year and a half. I came in 27th in the 4hr Male category.

Round 2 – Tunnel Hill 14th December 2014.
Round 2 was completely different. The event was dry and fast with a great course. I came in 22nd in the 4hr Male category.

Looking forward to the third and final round in the new year. I must try to find time to schedule in some training between now and then☺
