Chris Noble used to ride with us every week when he lived in Brighton and still returns occasionally to re-hone his Stanmer skills. He was 5th last year in Big Dog so not much honing required really.
He has sponsorship now and writes up his race report at the new link above. Bike magic has a full race report too.
Obviously his success is not just talent, effort and dedication but due to playing in the dark on his bike with us.
Well done Chris from all of us.
