Winter Weather Watch & Racing Round Up

Happy New Year!

The recent unprecedented rainfall hasn’t stopped hardy Harrogate Nova members from getting out and about on recent training rides.  Even the cold snap and dusting of snow on Sunday morning didn’t seem to have forced everyone onto their turbos.

Glen Turnbull battled through floods and sleet; Will Roberts could have done with snow tyres for his Cannondale; Craig Jarratt was up at a still and chilly Angram Reservoir just before sunset & Rob Senior came across a new water fountain feature near West End.
