Hi, my club East London Vélo is promoting the Hog Hill Winter Series, and we're looking for some feedback from riders.

This is a message from Leslie Everest, our secretary and the series organiser:

"It has been a steep learning curve for us organising races at the excellent new facility at RCC, however, there have been one or two problems for us. The Judges box is too small and camera cannot be placed high enough. Hence the weekly nag about placing your numbers correctly.

No salt for the circuit when frosty.

Water on the bottom circuit.

We have tried to overcome these problems and provided a spread of criterium races at all levels. I believe we have done that"

Constructive feedback is welcome, thanks!!

    beats hillingdon is my 2 pence worth.....

    the marshals at times are somewhat disincentive-ised by the cold to perform there duties..

    the races at cat 4 level blow apart end to end fairly rapidly making for a host of lapped riders and groups.... there has been a fair amount of confusion about finishing orders.

    this week looked better...

    can be a bit slow posting results on the web compared to hillingdon

    but that appears to be fixed as well
