Austin Vince Presentation

Hey all

Went to see Austin do his talkie thing at Brighton last night (23rd) and would like to report that it was fantastic!!!

He was articulate, intelligent, knowledgable, hilariously funny, and a joy to listen too. The talk mainly about Terra Circa was very interesting/inspirational and a few facts about certain other riders always raised a smile.

The only down side was that he didn't get to finish the whole presentation as we got kicked out at 10pm. We missed the last 20 mins.

I would happily listen to Austins ramblings all day and highly recommend you all go see him.

Well done Austin, hope to see you again soon.

I had a great time last night, Austin was on top form and we even had a flasher..! What more could you want on a Thursday night in Edinburgh.

Thanks to Doug and Mike for arranging it, good to meet you, and also the guys for the venue & sustenance.
