The Gannets ‘How Hard Can It Be?’ Circuit Race – Stourport – 13th May

The Gannets ‘How Hard Can It Be?’ Circuit Race – Stourport – 13th May

I headed over to Stourport on Severn after work for the Gannets circuit race and to go back to where my season began when I destroyed the back end of my bike warming up, way back in January now.

Race 2 – Woolly Mamil Winter Series 2 on the Stourport Circuit – 25th January

After last week’s close encounter, I decided to have another stab at this series in my effort to get some early season points taken care of. Some poor timekeeping meant that we (Sangita and mum, soigneur and chauffeur) arrived just about in the nick of time, with an all out team effort to get my bike re-assembled, signed-on and dressed correctly in time for the...
