Well after all that preparation, the weather finally defeated us. The race was called off on safety grounds – the spray created by traffic in the Northern Sector of the course was hazardous to any rider. Many thanks to all involved : Mark, Paul, Jason and Derek who were down to Marshal the turn, Neil who was to Marshal the slip road to the finish. Paul and Andrew for pushing off. John who was due to number catch, John who was the result board man. Phil and David for timekeeping duties and finally but certainly not least Ruth and Janet for catering – who in fact where the only ones to do any graft. Thanks to all riders for entering this event, we had a very strong field of 95. Apologies to anyone who I may have missed and there is bound to be someone, but I am a little frazzled after this morning.
Lets hope the weather is better for our final event of the season the T254 16th September first rider off 09:01 get your entries in please.
