Hi All - we've just got back as well. Thoroughly enjoyed the event - highlight of our european wanderings this year. Thanks to Neill and Ed for masterminding the whole thing and for their incredible hard work keeping the show on the road all weekend.

Shall probably meet some of you european retrobikers again - we already had plans to visit the old Eastern block next year so plan to meet up with "Team Poland". Photos to follow .....

And great mix on the CD Mr K ..... I didn't know Glen Miller was master of the ear worm but the Old Dutch Garden track won't leave the brain!

Performance wise I was glad to make it round the cross country route -great setting - perhaps this roadie is finally bending towards off road........?

Well done!

According to photo above by jonnyboy666,

Jeroen looks alarmingly like Leon - if Leon were ever to wear lycra...

No wonder Pierre looks so scared.


Shame I had to miss this in the end.

I trust you all made good use of my entry fee at the various bars around town...

Cheers,
BB.
