And now to racing…
Sunday morning saw a mandatory 8am rider’s meeting, against the backdrop of a beautiful sunrise, and then it was time to get going!
We knew we’d be queuing a lot, however, the Bonneville system is efficient and you can get set up at the mile one start point, with a support vehicle and all your kit, plenty of shade, water and company and wait your turn.
The first day of racing was definitely a ‘shakedown’ for Team Wildcard. Both guys took a couple of runs and got to know the system, the course and the salt.
