As many of you will have noticed, the Cribyn race on Saturday 21st April is a Mercia Champs race. It's a classic fell race with lots of rough ground and a couple of big climbs, followed by one of the best descents in the sport.
More details can be found here.
It's time for you to get out your best 'bib and tucker' and troll along down to the Annual Dinner and Presentation Evening, don't be late it's the place to be seen, get together with the rest of your Club and enjoy a really good night of fun and food and wine and trophies and photographs and most of all be with your Mercia mates ......
Have you caught the fabulous photographs from the two Races this weekend. It couldn't have been easy to stand up at Titterstone Clee never mind take pictures as good as that! As for LMV - just great, Alastair and Graham did a superb job of capturing the spirit of the race. I am thinking of instigating a new Trophy for next year "Most Stylish Slider" or the "Sore Arse Award" Not sure which yet! Click Here for a link to Alastair's website. For all you that want to relive the experience click here for a YouTube video
