Getting there early, Carolina and I decided to sit down outside and grab some food as we watched the bikes roll in. It was quiet at first, possibly because the skies looked a little threatening for a time, but it soon picked up and there was an excellent turnout.
Locally there is a lot of friction around the event, with many accusing the council of using us as a tourist attraction and taking an unfair percentage of the proceedings. Politics aside, the event seemed to go well, with lots of great machines on display. See you down there next week perhaps.
