Cycling Gold!

As mentioned in my previous post there has been no crafting at the weekend as I went to watch my husband Graeme at Newport velodrome.

He was competing in the National Masters Track Championships.  From age 30 and over all the riders compete within age categories at various events.

Graeme got a hard fought for silver in the scratch race (basically first over the line after many laps!) on Saturday, 4th in the Pursuit and then a blistering ride in the Points race yesterday netted the gold!!
It was a tad stressful - it was an 80 lap points race, every 10 laps the first 4 riders over the line get points (5,4,2 & 1) and if you lap the field you get 20 points.

Graeme lapped the field twice and because he was at the front also netted some points in between times - quite impressive and nice to have some of his team mates there to see it too.

Quite tired today so just a little browse at what to buy from the new Stampin' Up catalogue that goes live tomorrow!!


  1. Very impressive Jill, congrats to Graeme but I don't think this is a good enough excuse because you could have taken your pens with you, lol x

  2. A great end to a busy weekend - congratulations to Graeme on his brilliant achievement.

  3. Well done lads you must be so proud of Graeme. hugs Shirleyxxxx
