They're even better up steep hills IMHO Alan - put them on your road recumbent too!

What a great view! And a great battle between you and Sarah - she's better than you on the corners Evil Smile.

Yes, we really enjoyed this one - she so nearly got you! Smile

Thumbs Up to Sarah for being so patient and considerate when overtaking slower machines.

Do you/could you have a monitor on the, er, dashboard for a rear view, Fards?

Great video Ian! The 3-wheeled drifts and tail out action/corrections must have held your concentration out of the hair-pin. Excellent viewing.
P.S. I couldn't help myself ....I watched your Jumped video .....when you stormed back past the other rider I was grinning....widely.
Never believe an atom they make up everything.

Lol no dashcam monitors (I'd have stopped and got them working if so) just mirrors.

I did wait for Andrew in that last hairpin, which is why he managed to out sprint me in the 10mins race.
Was a choice of dive in front of him (like lap 2) and block him till I got out, or risk the usual 20ft of space he got on me coming out the other side of the hairpin..
Being the nice person that I do have a tendency towards (not worried about getting over excited at all and stacking it, no no no no) I coasted up behind and let him go first, then didn't have enough vroom left to catch him on the sprint up to the finish.
Wish the front camera had recorded the race, would have put a nice perspective on it (and the wheel lifts, which look nothing on rear cam, but felt a lot higher looking forwards!)

We generally allow two days for quibbling before posting up the definitive results and championship places on the website. That said...

...the Quibble Room is now CLOSED. Any quibbles sent in now will not count but you may still be charged by your network operator.

The Scroll of Results will now be sent to Thee Keeper of Thee Results to be officialised and certificatified and should appear on the website here in due course, or possibly in the fullness of time.

How about taking short 'my race' pieces from several people and mashing them up together? It might be a bit less daunting than offering to write a definitive report on the entire event.

That sounds like a great idea, Andrew. So how about folks send me a quick couple of lines of their most juicy and daring experiences for a Shrewsbury Mash-up. Any takers? I'll accept anonymous allegations too...
