Trinidad & Tobago – Day One, Laid Back at the Beacon Cycling Festival

-

The original plot for late March and early April was to ’embed’ with the Kingsnorth guys near Gent and cover Wevelgem, De Panne and Flanders. But then up popped Peter Jacques and Erin Hartwell, the movers and shakers who put together the teams for the Trinidad & Tobago Beacon Cycling Festival.

Two weeks in a tropical paradise reporting on criteriums and track meetings – as my buddy Dave would say; “I didn’t have the manners to refuse!”

The journey out was a nightmare, over which we’ll draw a veil – I’m trying not to think about the fact that I’ll have the same 29 hours travelling to get home.
