    Morning Cygnets!

    I hope everyone had a great weekend.

    Saturday Peterborough: we had two 4+ and 4x racing. Good weather but no luck at all. Everything went a little bit like a Buster Keaton movie. The 4s gained on experience and the 4x after a great start in lane 1, leading after 250m, hit a band of swans ( what an irony ..) , lost the control and hit the bank …. Another great story to tell in the bar though, you can blame the steerer ;)….
