    I've noticed a large increase in the numbers of entries over the last year.
    I've just received the results for the Dunsfold series #2, handicap race (Surrey League), 91 starters for a tuesday evening. Not bad.
    Races that last year that you could enter on the line are now oversubsribed.
    Brilliant news, and just shows that cycling, and especially road racing, is definatly here to stay.

    It's good to hear that, aint skeered. I think this must be down to the increase in medals and riders we now have on the world stage. We are still a small national in international racing but we're getting bigger and better and this is being seen particularly with the track riders!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
