Prescott 26 May 2018

One of the reasons I stopped competing for a couple of years was the attitude of some organisers. I had problems at Prescott, Loton and Shelsley. See the pattern?

Ben,

Good luck at the Stone.

On the Coupe you might like to check the hoses. Whilst some have been changed, some are quite old.
