no more l plate or circus vest

  1. Yay finally got around to getting off the L plate and lost my circus vest. Was worried to start off as they were expecting rain and hail this afternoon but the 2 wheel gods were watching over me and it was clear all day. Got 14 points and a massive congratulations from Mark and Paul at H.A.R.T as it was the score of the day. So very happy with the outcome and a huge let down as was thinking it was going to be harder.

  5. Congrats! For a moment I was wondering whether I was breaking the rules by not wearing a vest, but seems to be a Victorian thing...

  14. Hehe, I love the Circus Vest name! Alas I only got mine on Sunday, so I'll pay my dues, wearing (as I call it) the Yellow Vest of Shame.

    So did you do a fair bit of riding to help you ace the course? Well done
