Odd Down Circuit Racing – 2014-07-22

After a couple of Tuesdays off VC Walcot were back running the racing tonight with the usual mix of youth, 3/4, and E12 races. There was plenty of close racing throughout the evening, and after the last couple of races it was nice not to have any blowouts on the final lap.

We’re back again next week with youth, 4th Cat, and 2/3 races.

#167 – Shadow of a Doubt

I wasn’t particularly enamoured with this one either. Maybe I need a good dose of action movies to clear my brain a bit?

Tour de France 2014

With the Tour de France starting in Yorkshire and heading south, it would have been silly not to go to see it. We ended up riding across to Trumpington, just outside Cambridge to watch the start of the 3rd stage. We ended up stood around 500m past the 0km point, the break had already started by the time the riders reached us.

Levellers – Cheese and Grain, Frome

It’s been five years since I last saw Levellers in Frome as part of the Frome Festival, but tonight they were back again.

Support came from Gaz Brookfield who I’d not seen before, but was one of the better support acts I’ve seen in recent years.

The Levellers played a good set from what I could hear of it, but it could have been so much better. The sound mix was atrocious with the vocals so quiet that it might as well have been an instrumental performance at times. It’s a good job the crowd knew most of the words because you couldn’t hear them otherwise.

I’m not sure if it was a Levellers problem, or a Cheese and Grain problem, or a combination of the two, but I’m not sure I’ll bother seeing them there again.
