30th of July 2008, Poland, Allegro Cup - Formula European Championships

Ceri report - Day 1

The weather is gorgeous here in Leba (Poland) for the Formula Europeans. It's been windy up to now except today for the first day of the contest. Never mind, there are so many beautiful girls on the beach!

UK riders are Ross Williams, James Briggs and yours truly. The set up is amazing as always at Leba. The event is huge with big marquis for organisers, sponsors and internet cafe. There's a massive stage on the beach for parties, bands and giant aerobic classes. With 130 entrants from all over the world, it shows the widespread appeal of Formula.
