Nice to take a visit back to Teesside today to race the last Prem race of the season. Today's race didn't quite go my way though! Ended up parked behind the bollard in the last upstream on my 1st run and had to put the reversing lights on to get out! My 2nd run was much better but not quite enough to catch @nikitasetchell! Congrats on the win! I had already wrapped up the 2019 overall win 2 weeks ago at the British Open so quite a number of people seemed amazed that I was even there. Some even thanking me for being there. Whether it's the World Champs or a rainy day in Teesside, I still love racing, so why wouldn't I?? This trophy has some big names on it, all of whom I remember racing against in my early years of Prem. Lynn Simpson (World Champ 1995), Rachel Crosbee (multi World and Euro medallist (and aunt to Jess Fox for your pub quiz bank of knowledge!)), Laura Blakeman (multi World and Euro medallist), @lizzie.neave (World and Euros bronze medallist amongst other world medals). I remember all of them battling out so many Prem races in order to win this title. It's a shame that winning the British Ranking Series and that No.1 bib doesn't hold that same value to some paddlers as it used to. Roll on the 2020 Prem season!
