A chance for the new pairings for the Duo Normand to get some well-needed practice. No wind tonight – the only breeze was supplied by Brian’s auto-deflating tyres which were obviously warming up for the Grand Prix des Gents. Good rides from Dave ‘Don’t Forget Your Partner’ Simnett & Shaun Smart and also the new HRC pairing of Messrs Milner & Tapping. Will it be Howard’s Way or Dirty Den Strikes Again in the Duo I wonder?
