Well that’s it over for another year. But what a great event it was yet again…
This year Bigfish had 4 intrepid riders: Hannah, Olly, Vince and Andrew. As with our last time competing in 2008 we made friends, raced hard and had a great time. If the weather was unpredictable, the barging and bullying on the start of the race by some of the city-boys was highly predictable, as it always does seem to be a feature of the race – which is bit of a shame as it’d be nice to see a few more “social riders” taking part (like the guy in a dress for example!)
Our female riders did us proud standing up to the barging, by smiling and waving throughout the race. I also have to say TV Producer Andrew with his helmet-cam, and fitness-king Vince on the racing tyres also did an awesome job racing the Bigfish against some very highly-spec’d, expensive bikes. Vince ever-so-narrowly missed out on a spot in the final, by one place.
