Sportsbreak.com Tour Series – Round Two, Galashiels; Wiv SunGod and Pro-Noctis Take the Honours

-

Criteriums, a man of my acquaintance describes criteriums thus; ‘a bunch of guys turn up, they ride round in circles for an hour, one of ‘em wins then everyone goes home.’

Very true, but a night hanging over the barriers in a nice borders town under the spring sunshine with your amigos whilst catching up with old friends sure beats watching the soap operas.

Usually the first task at any pro race is to critique the hardware, but on this occasion we were under strict instructions that we had to visit the CAMS-Basso bikes ladies team.

Our amigo, former Scottish grass track legend, John Hardie was recently taken out by a car and CAMS – Cycling Accident Management Services – fought his case for him.

Result?

A spanking new replacement Pinarello; so naturally John wanted CAMS ‘bigged up.’

I can’t argue with that.
