SPR had great success yesterday at the first Pickering Brook event of the year. Craig James picked up third in the C grade TT, proving to us all that his helmet is not just about good looks. Amanda Nabi got greedy… She smashed the TT to come in third fastest then backed it up with second in the Road Race. Thomas Lund rode well in A grade and Ben Jackson provided some SPR success in D grade too.
B grade men provided the usual thrills and spills. SPR made it into every break. Pete “el prez” Mah celebrated his birthday by forming the first break of the day. The attacks kept coming as the rain came down. Jules, Mark, Heiko and I all made digs to get away, but nothing stuck. Not suprisingly, Matty cleaned up the sprint to make it 2 wins from 2 starts this year but the crowd was disappointed with his modest celebration. I hope he writes us a postcard from A grade!
