Great weekend Dave. Me and grumpy Chuck went up and met Tug ( and his whole farkin family) The rest just couldn;t be arsed to get in touch and meet for a beer. All farkin workin or head up arse syndrome. Fak em !!
The guys that did get together included mad nick from Zhuhai who has just had his pelvis screwed together and his elbow rebuilt. Lovely bloke.
Got soaked on Saturday and not a bike in sight ( didn;t get there till 2( took ages to load the swiss family Morrison in the motor)) blleding poured down till 3 and we waited till 5pm when it was cancelled by which time the track looked fine. Never mind went back and got slaughtered in the HRC and the beach club.
Sunday brilliant Sun and cold green tea all day ( Heiniken) top racing and Capriossi's pass between 7&8 had to be seen to be believed. Never seen it before and probably wont again. It even shook Rossi up. How Capri held that line and powered out and down to 9 was incredible.
Capriossi rode the wheels off the Duc and deserved the win. Rossi is just too good in the end.
Well dissapointed with Haydon but points in 4th is better than zero on yer arse in the gravel i guess.
Pedro didn;t miss a beat all race and deserved 3rd.
Not my favourite rider but Hopper did well on the pig Suzuki. Stayed with it and nailed 6th after a long chase and final pass on KR.
Most surprised by Giblet coming good for a change. Thought he might have nailed Haydon for a while but his advances only lasted a couple of laps.
Top day out
