Took my mum to the Good Friday meet for her birthday and though we had fun it was really poorly attended. The final presentation was watched by precisely 7 of us (and salt in the wounds one of the stewards was trying to get us to leave during it) .
Seemed that most of the spectators were friends/family of the riders and they largely packed up when their loved ones had finished their final event. It was a lovely sunny day so I'm sure that had some impact but I was really shocked. Full Gas Cycling usually put on well attended event right- I wonder what went wrong. Did anyone go last year, and if so what was it like?
I miss it happening at HHV.
Wow, just 7? How big was the attendance during the main event?
I always thought it was a shame it left Herne Hill and I haven't attended since.
I worked this event. Underwhelming would be a huge understatement. It didn't seem significantly different from a Winter Track League evening. Can I ask how much tickets were? My guess was excessive ticket prices combined with the glorious weather.
Edit: @Oliver Schick I've heard they sold 700 tickets for the event. I think LV Velodrome can seat 8000 6750. Also the final presentation was at 8pm which seems unnecessarily late
