Very Happy OK last year I was all geared up for this and PNECC had potential to enter 2 teams. Unfortunately someone's untimely collision with a mini roundabout in Denmead sort of lost the impetus Suspect

This year with even more gusto bounce I'd like PNECC to be represented in the competition (listed below). I'll quite merrily sort out the entry and act as manager - a riding partner please. I think we would have potential for at least x2 teams (paid for it last year - but no teams entered in the end).

Suspect I'll keep nagging, it isn't far, it's off road (air-field) traffic free and an excellent venue! So come on show some interest, lets REALLY push PNECC forward as a prominent club in Hampshire and support me in this.

Details below, post your interest on this thread.

Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy GOOD NEWS!!!!

The event above was cancelled - so what's good about that?
Suspect Well it's been replanned for the FRIDAY 9th September. This gives plenty of time to 'plan' it into your diaries? Plenty of time for some training? Plenty of time to get some TT experience in? Even opportunity to work in a couple of pairs. There IS potential here for PNECC to race in a 2-Up TT on an airfield, traffic free and take part in a well organised Royal Navy Royal Marine Cycling Association event cheers

bounce Last year was a disappointment due to my crash, this date now is at the end of a year where we 'should' be gearing up for some long sportives, so, in theory, a short TT would be a 'sharpening' aspect of training.

Basketball Look at your plans and lets see if we can put a few teams in for this one - you're not expected to be at a high standard, just turn up with some healthy enthusiasm sunny It needs 25 teams before it can take place, I'll also be pushing elsewhere to see if we can show local support to this event? flower

Transport etc. I'm sure we can arrange, I'll definately be taking my estate etc. please leave your interest in a reply to this post...... clown
