You'll be ok, just remember to lock the car, Bacup isn't the most crime free of areas!

How did you get on?

Yep, I'm aiming to do it again, see if I can beat last months result which was 7th. Also taking a few mates, 2 of which could well kick my ass so making my goal harder!

This time I'll ride the Kona rather than the Carbon, but both Retro :)

Was a good do, good weather, big feild, happy people; not sure where I finished. Lead most of lap 1, then dropped a few places, lap 4 was awful but recovered at the end, and the last lap (#7?) I took a couple of places back.

Maybe finished 6/7th in the end, will have to wait for the results to be published, as I left as soon as I had finished to watch the F1 !!
