A rotten night was expected and a rotten night we got, it didn’t stop the hard men and women to show up last night in great numbers. All cat’s had their race, from underage, ladies, the A4 section, and the main A*-A3-A2-1 race. A wonderful initiative from entrepreneur, cyclist and bike shop owner Glenn Kinning. The Nuts Corner Criterium Series will have 4 rounds each Tuesday in August and round 1 yesterday started it all off. In normal circumstances when I am doing the MC Job we bring the gazebo, but this would mess up the social distance, as in weather as this people would shelter underneath it, which normally they are very welcome, but I prefer to get wet and protect myself and others for the time being! Gerry Heverin was the man in charge as Race Director and done a good job in such circumstances. The circuit was perfect with smooth tarmac, lots of bends and corners, and very fast in the long run-up to the finish. The online entry for next week will be soon announced and very much recommended, hopefully, the weather gods have a wee chat and decided to give us a dry day!!
