Spent the afternoon in Greno Woods watching the Steel City Mini-downhill race with Wilf. The weather was lovely so there were masses of specators, quite a few of whom were dressed up as Star Wars characters in honour of the date. Steve Peat, one of the main movers and shakers behind the event, did his race runs in a special stormtrooper outfit.
We didn’t stay till the end but I’m pretty sure Peaty won, he was three seconds faster than everyone else at the end of the first round of runs. Everyone seemed to be having a smashing time and I bumped into a couple of people I know (including the joiner who just installed our new floor, randomly enough). The course looked fun and not totally impossible for mortals to ride – I might even think about having a go myself next year.
