Baby Blue somehow managed to make it to Fort William, Scotland for round 3 of the UCI World Cup.

The weather:

Bob wasn't lying when he said it has been scorchio up here the past few weeks. DH practise kicked off today and the word on the hill was that the course was blowing out as it was so dry. Right on queue it started to lightly rain, which is good news for the track, oh and it helps drown the mozzies too.

Good news for Bryceland fans is that Miami is back on the bike and ready to race.

First things first, the midges are out in force, if you're coming up bring some Agent Orange or whatever it is that the wee timorous beasties don't like.

Actually a local secret is this stuff, apparently it works a treat.
