Thirty two years ago a newly formed Castrol Honda team of handsome young men took to the sands of Weston in the third running of the beach race.
Last weekend one of those original riders and another member of that team not so young or handsome did it again.
Andy Newman an electrician from Bath and his mechanic from the 80’s Nige Gill. were joined by Des Vaughan who joined the BBMX team a couple of years after Andy,They both had expressed an interest in doing it again as a last hurrah.
So rather than selling our two practice bikes at the end of our season I said they could use them for this weekend.
They only saw the bikes last Tuesday and then again this weekend.
To my utter amazement , and pride, they both went the full three hours.
Both finishing with massive grins and a few tears
Hats off to you boys you came full circle.
