Hargroves Cycles RT: London X League Win for Michael Butler
The 8th Round in the London X League kicked off on the 20th November and our very own Michael Butler rode it. Here is his race report:
I raced London X League yesterday in Sussex at the south of England showground, which may possibly be part of the trophy series next year apparently! The race was a little eventful for me, mainly because I had a series of pedal/cleat issues! It was very windy, cold and muddy day. After a terrible start, I moved my way up the field and made it to the front at the end of the first lap. I sat in second place before opening a small gap. I was struggling to clip in for a long time and tragedy struck when I thought I had unclipped, as I went to hop the hurdles I wiped out losing the lead again. I eventually caught up and overtook Jonathan Dennis (Hackney GT) and managed to reel out a lead in the last couple of laps!
