This event was abandoned. Steph placed the signs and was ready to do timekeeping along with Dick. Robert showed up on his TT bike, and Graeme turned up but either had no bike or wasn't prepared to set it up! It was a pretty unpleasant evening with persistent rain and spray, but the nearby RTAs didn't seem to have affected traffic levels.

Results

Easter Monday saw 15 children aged from 5 to 14 turn out for NBRC coaching and a Time Trial skills lap at the bowl. The 'TT' course included a slalom, 'stop in box', 360, corner, wooden ramp and poles, limbo and finally see-saw giving the children a real test to balance skills and speed. It certainly mixed the results up and a few were so close they kept the timekeeper on her toes! 

Well done everyone. Results are below. 

The next children's 'TT' (date tbc) will be a timed lap of the bowl and chance to see how they've improved since summer skills school. Huge thank you from all the children to Ian of Kaizen Cycling for coming out to coach them.
