|Herne Hill UK- Good Friday meet||boneman|

|It's a holiday in the UK and I went to the annual Good Friday event at the Herne Hill Velodrome. Racing were Stuart O'Grady, Brad Mcgee (current World Champion pursuiter and FDJ rider), Bradley Wiggins (FDJ rider), Chris Hoy (current World's Kilo beating Arnaud Tournant), Chris Newton (current World's Points champ), Sean Eadie (current World's Sprint champ) and various others.
Sean Yates, former Motorola rider and now CSC DS was riding and looked very fit.
It's only a 15 minute train ride from Victoria Station. Nice day watching them on the track, sitting in the sunshine and drinking beer. McGee was pretty awesome in the afternoon rides. It's amazing how many of the 2002 World medal holders are from the UK and Australia. Nice to see them taking time off to ride this event.
