That went straight into the diary.
Just a stunning 2 hour ride to get there, along some of the best roads in the country. :cheers:

Looking forward to this hope it attracts the quality of riders that Oliver's mount does and also brings on some of the new talent, any new road race meets get the :thumb: from me

As its in the middle of nowhere,accomodation is a bit sparse so best book early to be sure of being close to the event.
Place we are at is now fully booked.
Check out Trivago and the like and shows lots of demand and few rooms left.
Wasnt sure on spectator capacity either so have booked general entrance tickets for Saturday and grandstand for Sunday :thumb:

It seems to be getting a lot of interest so far but I think it will be more of a clubmans introduction to road racing( hope I'm wrong in one respect but right in another) it won't be as exciting as the tt,nw, fom or Scarborough but road racing is road racing and it will get my backing, think its official name is the welsh road races and by the videos of the track it's a great start for the new comers to learn their trade but not sure it will attract the big names..again hope I'm wrong but hopefully see ya all there :D
