Dear Riders

An Introduction

As many of you are aware I have now taken over the fantastic work that Alistair has done in establishing MSG as one of the best regional series in the country. As someone who has been involved with competitive cycling for many years its with great excitement and enthusiasm that I'm looking forward to 2012 and the anticipation that the series is going to grow even further!

I would welcome any feedback from you on this years series so that if necessary we can make changes for 2012. Please feel free to email me on
