Primera Sportive 2012 - Rider Times
We saw a fantastic bunch of cyclists take on the Sportive this Sunday.
We all wish John a speedy recovery after taking a tumble early on in the day and would like to thank all the kind hearted cyclists who helped John and showed what greatpeople cyclists are! After spending 11 hours on Friday putting the signs out and then going round the course once again at 4.30am on Sunday to check! Some of them still got removed from their posts…. Still nearly all the riders managed to stay on route apart from one Primera staff member? It was great seeing so many smiling riders coming into feed stations for their free food, drink and gels and talking about the hills they had just climbed and bends they had just shot round.
We would like to thank all of the helpers who gave up their Sunday to help the event take place including all the Primera staff who had just finished a very busy Saturday at work! We try and put something back into our sport and work to raise money for charities so thank you to all the riders who took part and made the ride a great success. We will keep you up to date on John’s recovery and I am sure he will be on the start line next year!
