Batchworth look lively in Liverpool
2 May 2004
Glorious (if a little breezy) weather and great racing was the order of the day at Liverpool this weekend.
A few stones thrown by the local kids wasn't enough to dampen the spirits and the 200m event gave some typically tight racing. We had to wait with baited breath to find out that we'd won the final by the finest of margins.
In the 500m event an outstanding effort by the 3 Rivers crew saw them deny the home team a place in the final - which then turned out to be a great race between them, us and Thames. Fortunately by this time we seemed to have found our stride and secured our first clean sweep of the season.
More gory detail from the Rocket very soon...
