Strengths and weaknesses

Every so often in life and competitive sport, someone elses' weaknesses fall right into the lap of your own strengths. The only thing that makes that feel remotely bad is when that other person is someone you quite like and respect.

What can't take it away is for every bad day I have had, I deserved my third place today for being a brave downhiller with moderately OK bike handling skills. I overcame my initial lethargy to start riding all but one of the killer 30ft long climbs and Red and I remained (mostly) vertical through the rest of the race.

Finally it feels like the training is paying off.

Colchester rocks.
