Stoppelcross November 2006 – ‘Another day in the field’
The debates of whom was going to be the fastest from the Fat bmx team had been going on for weeks. Finally the 6th of November was there to take home the personal trophy for beating your pals on the corntrack in Handel. After a short training session we geared up for the first series of 15 minutes and one round, luckily Paul, Edward and I got in line early. There was no lottery for the best place at the start, the first one to come had the best pick. All three of us had a good place at the starting gate so everything was fair so far. As soon as the starting gate dropped everybody was gone except............. me. My Honda shut down (no excuse) and I left the start as number last.
