Loads turned up. As usual we met in the local car park and did a lap with various riders who have either entered, thinking of entering or just out for the hell of it. In contrast to past previews (where we’ve done them to get some more punters), we’re already full up this time. Still, folk want to know what the hell they’ve let themselves in for so it’s a useful and fun couple of hours.
The now-traditional shenagans took place. Mechanicals, long waits for following groups, people getting left at the traffic lights 10 yards from the start, etc. We had coffee and cake this time though – we had a small Critical Mass outside Costa Coffee 😉
