i've won all sorts, cakes, biscuits, cheese, foreign currency, stopwatch, socks, bidon, wine, money. the list goes on. but, I've never been ungrateful for any of it, as someone has been prepared to donate it. at the moment there is a lap prime on ebay for sale for the Newport Nocturne race in England. None of the riders will actually get it though.... It goes to a very good charity, the Dave Rayner Foundation.
oh yeah, forgot to mention. I did a crit in Holland that had primes down to 20th place on some laps.... Judges nightmare.
Seeing as the Rayner fund paid for Tom Simpsons memorial to be cleaned I'm not sure you can call it a 'very good charity'. I certainly won't be giving it any more money.
matter of opinion I suppose. I support the charity, as the vast majority of the funds raised go to helping young hopeful riders race on the continent.
