With only 1 day to go before the actual event starts, the 31st edition of the RHL Weston Beach Race is ready and primed for race action. Friday was an exceptionally busy day here at Weston with riders signing in opening first thing this morning with eager competitors in the queue well before 8am. Media coverage was at full steam, starting early this morning with BBC Radio Bristol recording a live feed riding along the start straight here at Weston. ITV filmed the Dave Thorpe Honda academy training day for tonights West Country news and to finish a packed media and press day, BBC TV broadcasted live from the beach this evening for their main news programme at 6pm. Walking with the wounded held a charity walk raising funds and awareness for both the re-training and re-education of wounded servicemen and women with the aim of helping them find long term employment after they have left the Armed Forces.

We had both ITV and BBC broadcast from the beach and we also had the "Walking for the wounded" track walk. Dave Thorpe and Paul Winrow hosted academy training days which were a huge success, so all in all a very memorable day."
