Elvington Top Speed World Wheelie Event August 16/17th.
« on: August 11, 2014, 10:46:38 AM »
This weekend is the main summer event in the UK with an international flavour in both the wheelie competition and the standing start mile event.

Riders are coming from Ireland,Holland,Sweden,France,Finland and the USA as well as the normal UK competitors for what is looking to be a great weekends racing,even the weather looks fine now after a brush from the remains of Hurricane Bertha over the last couple of days,at least she gave the track a good clean  :mrgreen:

I hope to see a new record from Becci Ellis and a new overall track record for the mile maybe from Jack Frost or a couple of others plus I am back in the game now after a superb job from my USA parts suppliers and UK specialists.
I will try and update things as they happen on site but the signal strength is usually poor so you might not get an update till I get home.  :bike: :tu:

Sadly the results only seem to appear on facebook although they do get copied around some other websites that you need to register for to view anything.
I will do my best to get some pictures and text up somehow even if i have to bribe our awesome web/photo/facebook specialist  :wink:

I will take a 10mph tailwind and 65 degrees F good air just as forecast now  :tu: :tu:
