Title: To: Anyone in Staffordshire tonight, 18th June...

As discussed in another thread. There's a proper cycle race round Stone town centre tonight. Like the Newport Nocture, I'm told. Entertainment from 18:30, racing from 19:30. The Rapha team is here and the Pinarrello one too. Can't wait.  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: The Porter guy is commentating, live bands etc.

The sprint up the High Street on wet concrete bricks will be interesting.

I'll try to get some photos for tomorrow.

It was a fabulous night of entertainment - unfortunately spoiled by cold, wet and windy weather. The crowd just evaporated at the end of the race.
