Well I had such fun. Following a kid on a bike and watching out for him/her is just the ticket for me. We did two laps, and I had to really coax my wee duck up the last hill, but he did really well, and powered across the finish line.
So I volunteered to do that again any time, they can count on me. If they don't need me I'll have a sufferfest of my own in D grade, but getting the future safely around the circuit is a bigger contribution to cycle sport than any effort I will ever make on my own as a racer. It is going to be a great year.
