It’s raining this week, which in the context of regular Mancunian weather is perfectly normal and should be expected. It has however been dry and warm for almost as long as I can remember – we’ve even got a hosepipe ban, just like when we were kids… so for the rain to arrive right now, a few days before Hit the North, is a right bloody slap in the mouth. It looks like there’s a few days worth of it out to the west too,gradually turning the dusty fast trails of last week into…well you know what.
Ah well. It could be worse. At least I’m not racing eh? 😉
SEE YOU AT THE WEEKEND HIT THE NORTH’ERS – THE KETTLE’S ON!
It’ll be fine, a bit of rain never harmed anyone 😉
I had a quick ride round the area on tuesday and it was still pretty firm then, fingers crossed for you. I’m hoping to make it down to do some cheering/heckling but not sure I’ll even be able to manage that.
Bloody good event Jason. Thanks for organising it. I’m partly glad there weren’t more people competing as it reduced the number of riders that passed me during the day.
Please do another next year, hopefully people will be in a position to enter!
