Marc Gee – Thetford Winter Series – Sunday 12th February 2017
(words by Marc Gee)
After a cold and miserable start to the day we set off for the last round of the Thetford Winter Series.
We arrived at 8:30 as the sky cleared.
After a sighting lap of the fast and flowing single track lap I pumped my tyres up and got ready for the race.
It was a fast, straight 500 metre fire road start and straight into the single track.
I led the race for the first lap with second place directly on my back wheel. It was a fast first lap
I followed second place on the second lap before I led for the third lap.
On the last lap second place overtook and I could not respond fast enough to stay on his wheel.
I finished in second place and won the overall series.
A fantastic course, friendly event and I will be returning next year to defend my title.
Good rides all round from the Sherwood Pines Cycles riders, Graham Gee, Carl Kelleher and Gary Kondor.
Thanks for the continued support from Sherwood Pines Cycles and I can’t wait for the season ahead.
