Hello All

In the last month I've had a brief trip to Bremen where I took in a football match on the 5th.  For photography however, I was limited to a few mobile phone shots...it was my sons stag do after all!

The Waterbeach Running Festival took place on the 12th May and again the event continues to grow.  It was the third year that the event has been held and I have been there each year.  I hope that the numbers will continue to grow in the future although the prospect of development on the site does cast some doubts about just how long the event can continue.  A flat hard surface which is traffic free...there simply cant be too many of those around these days. Below are the winners of the 10k.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But as you can see, everyone had fun.

The grass track racing on the 13th that I planned to attend was cancelled.  The overnight rain simply meant that the track would have been rendered unusable for later in the year had it taken place.

It was a fairly cold and windy evening on the 16th which may have accounted for only 6 riders turning out for the Team Cambridge Cycle time trial in my village.  On speaking with one of the riders however, he assured me that the cross wind wasn't as bad as was expected.

My next event was the Southern Athletics league meeting on 19th May.  Whilst the photo below is nothing special, it is significant.  It was a clearance of 2.55m...A British record for over 65 females.

The following day I went to Silverstone for a series of races, the feature race being the Blancpain GT Endurance cup.

It was quite a chilly evening again on the 23rd for another Team Cambridge Cycle time trial and a few more attending this week.

It was a warm evening on the 25th however when I went to Elsworth for a motorcycle trial being run by the Cambridge Matchless Motorcycle Club. 

My last sporting trip of the month was the following day.  A visit to the Cycloparc near Gravesend for some BMX riding.

Here are the events for the next few weeks that I am planning to attend, either officially or unofficially.
