Rider Highlight: Paul Bonds takes the win at Day 1 of Jingle Cross

Paul Bonds rode to win on Day 1 at Jingle Cross and finished 3rd on Day 2 in the Master’s 45+. An impressive weekend!

Event & Category:

 45+ this weekend

Brief event/course description:

Friday not as technical as Saturday. Saturday, essentially the WC race.

How’d the race go down for you?

Great. Took the lead into the grass in a group of 4 including me, including SE (Shadd Smith) and Savery. Savery made a go on lap 2 and had a 5ish sec. on Shadd & myself. Thought it was time to go with 3 togo and hit it away from Shadd. Rode through Savery and only looked back at the finished, Ha!

Which coach do you work with and how did your training help you prepare for the event?

 Matt Hill. He is a great match for me. In our short time together, he has already dialed in somethings. I am confident the meter will get better dialed over time.

What advice do you have for someone up and coming in your cycling discipline?

Have fun!
