No workshop and 2012 fixtures

Not a lot happening on the bike front, mainly due to lack of house and workshop, but should be resolved before Christmas. My hands have become clean over the last two months and apart from a quick fettle of the DT I’m getting withdrawl symptoms

I did go to the Welsh Championship meeting in Aberystywth a couple of weekends. Primary purpose was to ensure that both pre74 classes remain for the 2012 season and that the Championship included only one round per club and was spaced out over the season in a sensible manner.

Also, the AMCA dates meeting took place this last weekend and the provisional dates for 2012 are in the attached PDF (and in the following image)

2012 fixtures

Both at the Welsh and AMCA meeting, the issue over low entries was discussed and whilst the potential is now there for a £20.00 addition charge for people who want enter on the day, the real issue is geography and catchment. Whilst the numbers were lower in West Wales, both Narberth and Teifiside are great events and I rode 4 times there last year.

Will be looking to choose wisely this coming year and trying to get in all the Welsh Championship rounds once they are confirmed.

Now to move house and work on the bikes for the 2012 season….
