The Lansdowne at Portimão

We’ve completed our end of season finale at the Algarve Classic Festival and what a weekend it was. Rain wasn’t in the script but it didn’t seem to dampen anyone’s spirits. The Lansdowners mixed perfectly with the GP Originals riders. Congratulations to Mike Russell and Duncan Fitchett on their wins. See the results.
