I didn’t really enjoy the HPV day this year. There was way too much waiting around and it didn’t seem to run anywhere near as smoothly as last year. The day stretched on so much I had to miss the last 30 minute race. It made for a very long day indeed.
Preliminary Results can be found here:
There were quite a few trikes at the event today which was great to see. There was a fully streamlined Catrike that was very fast indeed but the rider suffered from muscle cramps so he didn’t race. He was really fast in the warm up and it was a great pity he didn’t get to race with the rest of us trikes.
There were two other Catrikes that showed up but only one other raced. The Speed that raced was really quick .
I think I did a personal best but will have to wait for final results.

I managed to get a victory and win my dad some of Ricky’s wonderful beer.
