When The Wheels Don't Come Off

Written by nonnies at 21:13 29/5-2020

  Everything at nonnies hq was set for a small break from cycling. Bikes mothballed, riders released from contracts and investments made.
  Team management would be otherwise engaged for a while. Yet things took an interesting turn, meaning that management could still run a small outfit with less involvement.
  New contracts were hurriedly settled a few riders still waiting for transfer and with the short break racked in serious points in a few days. The end result ?
  Instead of a battle in Norway the team now faces a battle to make it to Cymru. Fingers crossed.
  The team's future still hangs in the balance for now.
