Dan Patten’s Blog – As the season rolls on the races are coming thick and fast. May was always going to be an important month with the Belgium Cup (Beker Van Belgie/Coupe de Belgique) series taking center stage.
As I mentioned in my last blog post, I’d been to see the doctor after feeling very low for a couple of weeks. Of course, things weren’t going to turn around overnight but I was hoping that it wouldn’t take long before I was feeling back to normal.
I continued to keep things easy in training and low and behold on the day of my first cup race of the season in Kampenhout the body didnt feel half bad.
Despite how I had been feeling previously, I put myself at the head of the action from the off… maybe getting a littled carried away considering how little riding I had been doing, but I wasnt there to make up the numbers.
