MudSweatGears RD4 Thickthorn 2021 - a sweaty mess!

 MudSweatGears RD4 Thickthorn 2021 - a sweaty mess!

Our last MSG race for the year, as round five is not an option for us to attend. 

 Nate and Ali headed off for the practice lap and Lily and I went off to MSG registration to correct my administration error, having mistakenly entered myself for the Div1 males, Div1 female and U13 (i'm blaming autocomplete!) 

Even though the weather was hot and humid the wooded pit was still very loose in places and changed texture each lap. The lap was shorter than previous visits to Thickthorn with the fast bus stop chicanes long straights and a couple of A-lines keeping things interesting. I think most of my memories will be the 'sponge' like drag past the start finish line.

      Ali had a solid race coming in 3rd and setting up a good end of season result in Div1 and Vets.

Nate finished in the top 10, keeping consistant all year and Lily kept the cheering going all day long.. 

I had my best reult of the year coming in 7th in Div1 and 3rd vet. The last round will decide overall positions but we've all done a much as we can and had fun doing it!
