On Sunday I got the opportunity to go and shoot video at the Tesco Rutland-Melton CiCLE Classic. If you've not heard of it, check out the vid below. It's a crazy race, that zig-zags across the countryside (the course looks like the organiser Colin Clews just dropped a ball of wool on the map) taking in all the worst, non-maintained roads in the area. So that means lots of farm tracks, lots of gravel and lots of punctures. I was following the Rapha Condor Sharp team round as part of my Condor tie-in. It worked out great as Zak Dempster won, although I'm sure he'd be first to say it was a huge team effort — every time you see them in the video, the men in black are on the front.
With any luck, I'll be doing more of the same at the Lincoln Grand Prix. In some ways it should be much less stressful as the course is a simple loop, so it should be easier to get around, plus, the full RCS team will be there, so I can — fingers crossed — hop in a team car and get some behind the scenes footage. We'll see.
Do me a favour though and "like", or just embed, the video above — the more hits this video gets, the more keen the team will be to want to do more!
