Grimpy travelled down to Braintree for round 3 of the LVRC Percy Stallard National Road Racing Series taking 2nd place in his age group behind Bill Cotton and ahead of former pro Tony Woodcock. Thankfully the services of the Red Cross were not needed this week as they were the previous Sunday when he rode the Vets National Mountain MTB Champs on the 2012 Olympic course in London (fell off on a drop-off). Despite the fall he finished 3rd in his age group and 7th in the over 60's category.
The mountain bike rides are still meeting at 6.30pm Thurs eves in Brighouse and this Sunday Grimpy and I are planning an assault on the Mary Townley Loop, meeting 8am at Callis Bottom, Hebden Bridge (if the weather doesn't improve its likely we'll cut it short).
