Postby Simon Hemington » Fri Aug 21, 2009 7:59 am

Can anybody spare a couple of hours on Saturday afternoon?
We just need a bit of help with signing on and judging.

Approximately 12:30 till about 16:00.

Lift available from Berko/Hemel.

Thanks,
Simon

Looking after the lap board is probably as taxing as it gets to be honest... on circuit races with 2 races going on at the same time you do need to keep your wits about you! You need to be able to follow the racing and identify what riders are leading the way if it breaks up.

Thanks to Steve O for stepping in at the last minute and helping out.

Andy and Doug raced in the 4th cats and E123 respectively.

Andy comfortably finished in the 4th cat race.

While new boy Doug was a bit of a star in the senior race. He jumped across to a break of three around 30 minutes into the race. The 4 of them then worked steadily together for the next hour and nearly lapped the whole field. Doug got 3rd in the sprint for the line after a pretty big effort in the break. Excellent stuff.

Would be nice to see a few more faces next time, either helping or racing but at least we coped.
