Big thank you to the organizers of the Worlds. You have to be pleased how it went ....you did a great job and it went as smoothly as you could possibly expect with the numbers attending and the variety of racing etc.
I must apologize for not being there for the podium. I most certainly did not expect anything as the last results I saw, I managed only 21st place. I was knackered and only wanted a shower and to get home for a rest.
Thanks again.

Big thanks to all the organisers. Brilliant Worlds.
Enjoyed the 3 hour a lot. Getting the pacing right is really interesting. Left too much in reserve at the end but better that than too little. Have to do a little work to the Kingcycle seat though. It was a pain in the coccyx.
 
Great to see Mikes bikes on the track rather than hanging on his wall.

Thanks again everybody.

Roy

One thing I wished I'd done differently is to have bagged the Kingcycle and put the rear disc on which would have give me approximately an extra 2 mph on my average speed. I didn't think it would make much difference but I was thinking against the Beano and the Velomobiles. Didn't really think it through I guess.

Thanks to everyone for making the weekend such good fun.

Racers each got an exclusive T-shirt but some people were not able to come, notably Heike Bunte. Unfortunately her t-shirt and some others that people had bought disappeared from the goodie bags in the race control tent. If anyone has taken a T-shirt thinking they were surplus it would be great if you could return it to us. email treasurer at BHPC.org.uk and we'll let you know a address to send it to.

Thanks very much

Also water bottles went missing from goodie bags apparently and two cycling shirts that belong to Gerard and were on sale by him in race control at £40 each...

And if anybody has seen the brass adapter from Mike Burrows track pump he would like it back please!

Thanks Jeff.
 
You have to wonder if the people who design and install showers ever actually try them out. I had plenty of coat hooks but no soap tray in the shower and water pressure so high it blew the light shower curtain out of the tray every time it hit it.
 
Big thanks to the people in the back room slaving over their computers getting the results online as well.

Do we get any points for the 3 hour race or was it just for kudos?

While we're playing the missing stuff game, if anyone's found a black-with-white-stripe Walz synthetic cycling cap, sized for a smaller than average head, that will be mine. Last seen in the vicinity of the refreshments van after the 1 hour race, I think.

Absolutely no complaints about organisation from me, it was all top notch, and clearly a mammoth task behind the scenes.

Agreed about the state of the camping field (the prickly stuff went right through my tent's groundsheet, and best not mention the ants), and the lack of thought that went into the design of the showers, but that's venue stuff, and in my mind was more than made up for by the excellent track.

A fun weekend, and lovely to meet friends old and new. I didn't expect to end up on a podium, either...

Congratulations Kim.
 
Betteshanger needs another £500,000 to finish the works. Was on our local BBC news, a kind of appeal.
 
The thistles are a blasted nuisance everywhere in the area. At home I had one go right through a tyre on our little tractor and one go straight through my heavy duty hide gloves into my hand. I'm very wary when I'm riding the trike around the fields. The grandchildren will run around with no shoes on as well which often ends in tears. I found the only way to get rid of them is to hand dig them every time I see one. Ends up being a mammoth task though. 
 
It is a great track though as you say. That sea breeze really takes the edge off the heat as well.
 
All the best.
 
Roy
