    Oops, I'm a bit late with this this year...

    Brixton Super madison is back this Sunday, 18 June.

    There will be a full program of events, including madison races (National Hard Track Endurance League), match sprints (National Men's and Women's Sprinters League), women's races, the infamous sprinters' scratch race (with random cash primes donated by the spectators for added carnage) and keirins for men and women among others.

    There will be a huge cash prize pot provided by Brixton Cycles Club, plus prizes very kindly donated by Canopy Beer Co.

    As always this event is free to spectators, with beer provided by Canopy and jerk chicken, rice and peas at Captain Cliff's famous BBQ, plus stalls from Brixton Cycles and race commentary from @Ecobeard

    Rider entry for the Madison and Men's Sprint events is now closed, with entry on the day for the women's events only - £25, sign on closes at 10am.

    The sprint qualifying time trials will be at 10.30am and the main event will be from 12.30 - 5pm.

    I'm playing and I'm proper shite. Nearly 40 years old and only started learning how to play in the last year. Don't let lack of skill put you off, we would have less than half a team if talent were a requirement...

    We're only three days away! No Forsterman, sorry ;)

    Looks like we'll have decent weather (well, not raining at least) and a full field for the madison and sprint, with a nearly full field for the women. There are still spots for women to enter on the day, £25, sign on closes at 12.

    We will also got these brilliant Super Madison t-shirts for the sells on the day, £20 to you. I picked them up from the screen printers yesterday and they look brilliant, even if I do say so myself. Sorry about the massive photos...

    I dream of being able to take the Monday off.

    Oh well, 12 hour day at work with stinking hangover it is then.

    It's BYOB I'm afraid, but there will be tea :)

    Should be some pretty decent racing though. Shame I probably won't be there in person as I'll be most likely nursing a very sore head. Some bright spark thought it would be a good idea to have his stag the night before...
