Thursday '10' Report and other News

On a clear evening with the wind dropping for later riders we had a good turnout of 44 riders for our Thursday evening '10' on the Thicket course. Pete Weir triumphed again with 21:22 which could have been quicker as he had to battle the early blowey conditions as first man off.  He also had some problems  at the National '10' on Sunday which lost him some time, breaking a spoke 2 miles from the finish and then mistaking the finish line and sitting up too early.
