Well we’ve hit September and so the final month or so of the season for the Dan Patten Blog. The good news is I’m still feeling motivated to race and race hard to finish off the year. The bad news is the last few weeks I’ve been caught out with a bit of illness that seems to be going round these parts at the moment, and which has proved hard to shake off.
Despite this, the last few weeks has seen three more top 10 results for the palmares. Battling performances for a 6th in Schellebelle and a 5th in Erpe Mere may well have seen the next win if I hadnt felt so “off”.
Before this though, no doubt came my strongest performance of the last few weeks.
A kermesse race in Wambeek–Ternat, which featured a long cobbled climb on each circuit, was to see me earn the respect of kermesse legend Mario Willems.
