Sunday was looking fine and sunny all morning but there was always a threat of a change in the afternoon. We pressed on with the TT and scratch race before the weather turned on us. We decided to pull down the pop top, but before we knew it, we had to abandon the last race as the wind increased and the rain was coming. The last of the pack up crew were saturated from the rain.
Despite the wind starting to pick up early on, we had a huge number of PBs in the Time Trial this week. Hopefully people are starting to realise its the best way to pick up points. –Remember riders, you’ve been this fast before and you’re at least a week older and stronger. As for me, I’m just a week older 🙁
Just a quick reminder to try and arrive before 2:30pm at the latest. -I upload the start list at 2:45pm but if you’re leaving it that late to arrive, your kids are not getting a chance to warm up by the time they get their helmets and shoes on.

The weather turned during the scratch race. I remember thinking at the time we could have squeezed one last race in, but I’m glad the Commissaire put her foot down. It was blowing a gale and bucketing hard by the time we packed up. Thanks Comm.
