    I went today. I've been before and it's always pretty good. This year the 'stars' were Cal Crutchlow, Danny Webb, Sammy Miller, and a few others. Agostini is usually there, but I didn't see him this year.

    Some Nice old stuff to drool over.

    Note the other exhausts. Fitted after scrutineering and just before the Cavalcade. Couldn't hear myself think. Good old boy.

    Nice, but I'm not sure about the 'Fairy Lights' in the nose.

    Nice Pics, :clap
    I didn't fancy it on Saturday, it was peeing down all day in South Manchester so I presumed it would be in in Northwich too. Looks like I was right.
    I do usually go on Saturday as a preference to Sunday. The massive wire fence really annoys me, I love watching the bikes but I also like to take pictures. No good through that fence. It's a great event, but I wish the organizers could do something more for the spectators or move it to a site with better viewing. Do you ride in any other sprints? Or was this a one off?

    I only managed the cavalcade this year. I'm hoping to race next year.
