I was planning to enter the national trophy race on the 4th, but injury and enforced loss of training put paid to that... Now I have a reason to review that. Of course it clashes with LL and CL races ...
Misread my calendar, it's the WL event as well as the Stanmer Park that clash with the National Trophy on November 4th.
See my thinking was that if I am traveling all the way to Ipswich, I might as well stay till Sunday to do the NT race. The track at Chantry Park is meant to be divine.
All this is academic, as I am on parenting duty that weekend, so unless a miracle happens I will be sat at home
I will probably do the Hemel race, as it's near and LL is not doing anything that weekend. Hillingdon is super near, but we are invited to a wedding that day, and my suggestion that I skip the service and just turf up in time for the feast was met with stony silence
Nothing so unusual, Leeds hosted the nations Cup & the World Championships in 1992, when Roger Hammond won the Junior title.
We were stood talking to Phil & Nora Thackray (Richard & Roberts parents - both lads were riding in the GB squad that day), & after the presentation Roget cam up to them, as he'd been staying at their house.
He was more than happy to show us the medal & the jersey
Still got my programme for the Worlds on a bookcase
