Attended a big BMX racing event here on Mauritius, which took place on a 5 km circuit next to the historic Albion lighthouse, only a few kilometers from my residence.
Impressive participation by local bikers at all levels and ages.
The race circuit looks fairly flat and easy -- except for a VERY difficult technical section right around the lighthouse.
The pack split up real quick after the start. After that, the leaders lapped the slower riders a couple of times - they were doing six laps, while the "mom & kids crowd" were doing just one or two....
