Cove, Aberdeen, 23 February
Cove Bay is on the coast just south of Aberdeen. It’s a modern residential area, featuring many short roads and blocks of housing at various angles, with footpaths, grassed areas and cul-de-sacs to trap the unwary – ideal sprint terrain. The opportunity to try touch-free Emit was a bonus for those going to the JK. The weather was fine and dry, with a chilly breeze.
