Hi everyone – hope you’re not all having to recover from too much chocolatey Easter indulgence and have been able to enjoy a bit of a break over the long weekend.
The weather certainly turned it on and while many might have enjoyed putting their feet up, there was certainly some hard slog being put in by the 91-strong field during the mighty Vital Signs Tour de Lakes racing over the weekend.
It certainly proved to be another great weekend for Tour manager Allan Dunn and his trusty team of willing volunteers and huge congrats to all those who battled through – there were some tight results indeed. You can check out all the coverage and photos on Facebook or get all the news updates heading_here – Well done and congrats to all involved for another hugely successful Easter weekend event.
Now a reminder that this information is all required by this Thursday please
