Well thats it over & done with for another year (phew)!! What a great afternoon of racing, spectating, noise, atmosphere, the whole shooting match.... To see so many people out supporting our event either as a rider, spectator, helper and of course the sponsors is very gratifying, and I hope you all enjoyed your afternoon with the Bec CC.
A great win by young (only 15 year old!! ) Germaine Burton (Team de Ver) was a treat to witness, as were (the few) rides that I actually did get to see!! Congratulations all category winners, and also to every single rider on your efforts. I hope ‘the pain’ will soon be forgotten and not stop you coming back & seeing us again in 2011.
