Where serious cycle apparel meets London's East End with a bang.
Sunday turned out bright and sunny at Broome Heath in Norfolk, something of a surprise given the weather forecast. As seems to be the case every year Tim Bonnet, Shaun Aldous and Sara Flat provided a great course much to the Hackney GT crew's delight. The event incorporates the anually awarded Ivan Jeckell Trophy which is always hotly contested. HGT's Matt Webber was looking to retain his title but in the end lost it to a flying Sean Dunlea who'd recently returned from racing in Belgium and the USA. With no racing in the Eastern League next weekend Hackney GT will be contesting the London League with Lee Valley Youth promoting at Hog Hill. The addition of a new set of rideable steps should provide a challenge above and beyond that of the changes in elevation.
On the music and promotions front we return for the big one:-
TROPICALISTA NYE 2014
Happening @ The Rich Mix in the East End of London for the best in Latin, African and tropical vibes. Headlining is the mighty Grupo Lokito mixing up the Congolese Soukous and Cuban Salsa for what is always a heady party show. Hosted by Movimientos and Arriba La Cumbia with DJs Cal Jader, Spiritual South and Russ Jones it's looking like another ram-a-jam affair.
This event is always a sell out so book your tickets early to avoid disappointment and prepare to get truly hot and sweaty for a new year's eve shakedown, carnivalistic fiesta celebration into 2015
