National Unicycle championship

Great performance by Tony today in this event. He lined up in club colours in an international field which ranged from little kids through to some pretty serious players (tri-bars, disc brakes and massive wheel).

The event was 7 laps of a one mile circuit in Horwich, including a bit of up/downhill and a few tight corners.

Everyone seemed to have a different style - Tony's seemed to involve quite a lot of arm movement compared to many but proved quite effective and got him round safely. Not quite on the podium but everyone got a medal and they all deserved it!!

I've posted a short video on the club's Facebook account but can't get it to load on here.

My own performance in the Vets race was a shocker - dropped after a couple of laps and later suffered the shame of being lapped. I'd forgotten how much I don't like crits and really struggled cornering at speed in the pouring rain. Think I might get myself a unicycle!
