Port Mor Wheelers Grand Day Out

Another cycling related post today in the Islay Weblog cycling week. Islay saw a special guest arriving last week. His name is Brian Smith and he is two times British Professional Road Champion in 1991 and 1994. Jeremy and brian know him well and those of you who follow brian's cycling blog already know what Brian Smith did on Islay besides cycling. One of his activities was to help teach the Port Mor Wheelers the tricks of cyclocross on the grass. Brian Palmer wrote an interesting review on his blog and created a video too but first a quote from brian's blog:

while it perhaps made only minimal impression on a bunch of young kids, mr hastings and i were ably assisted by brian smith, twice british road race champion, eurosport commentator and pundit, and general all-round good guy. great fun was had by all, though tribute has to be paid to the aforementioned mr hastings who, having recently completed a course in cycle coaching, was the day's master of ceremonies: the two brians just either got in the way, placed or picked up coloured cones, or in some cases, one brian prejudiced the outcome of the individual grass pursuit by pushing the competitors whom he was responsible for starting....

The results of which can be seen on the following video, kindly provided by brian palmer of www.thewashingmachinepost.net
