The grit.cx free beer offer was understandably popular
Just like all other British riders, Ian Field was almost pushed ahead during the race by the incredible cheering. After the race, he was invited to the podium, as the current British Champion and it took him almost a minute to find the words to talk. It was a profoundly poignant moment for him and for us, spectators, too.
Eventual third place finisher Nikki Harris has plenty of fans in attendance too
Francis Mourey is not getting any younger. However, he is one of those older riders, who get better and better when the going gets tough. He is getting into better and better form, just in time for the soon-to-be-here, fiendishly hard Christmas week.

They young Wout Van Aert showed today that he can win on flat and fast courses.
