Top, top day. In fact, I might even go so far as to say better than last year, despite the conditions.

Good to see lots of familiar faces, and very nice to meet some new ones.

will post up a report later as I'm ruined :lol:

Good to see you guys today.
Sorry for polluting the reto area with my modern muck :oops:

Had a fantastic day. First lap was horrid, but they got better and better.
Had more spills than I can remember, but got told by one of the stewards that I rode one very tricky section better than he'd seen anyone else manage all day! It was my last lap, and I'd stopped worrying about hurting myself :lol:

Now sat in a b&b in Dover, ready for my epic drive tomorrow

Nice to see everyone, even if it was usually just whizzing past the Retrobike lair. :D

Perfect conditions on the day really, I was fretting about the rain all week, changing tyres and wheels. There were some nice retro bikes flying around the course, Cannondale Killer V, GT etc. Its fun to race retro at least once a year.
