Despite placing fairly low down the leader board, team Perlie Rides had a great day out. For a first outing and no practice on this particular hillside we felt we did quite well. The organisers are Gravity Project and they organise a race each month with five events making up the seasons’ series. Check out www.gravityproject.co.uk for more info. Waking up at five is an early start for Hackney dwellers but well worth it.

Practice sessions run on the Saturday before, if you can make it, so camping might be an option next month? Anyway more photos crashes and events to come no doubt……
