Epsom CC 25 Sun 25th Sept G25/54 (revised course)
- posted 14-10-2016
This was the nominated event for the club’s 2up trophy but sadly only one team entered being Robert Royston and Dave Twin. Driving down the chaps discovered that half the dual carriageway near Faygate was coned to allow for traffic to go in and out of a tough mudder event. This would make racing very dangerous and there were worries that it might get cancelled. On arrival at the HQ it was discovered that the course had been revised to do 3 circuits of a shortened version of the course meaning the distance reduced to about 22.5 miles. There had been rain earlier but conditions were improving as the team started the event. Unfortunately due to the damp roads Robert got a puncture just over halfway round the first lap. Thankfully spares were on hand and the duo were able to continue. They eventually finished in 1.01.23 (8th) last of the teams that actually started, but at least they won the club trophy! The winners were James Stuart and Chris Holmes of Norwood Paragon in 46.35.
There was also a solo event following the 2up in which 2nd claim member Mark Newton finished in 48.49 (7th) and a rare sighting of Nick Gritton finishing in 58.31 (50th) on a road bike. This event was won by James Boyman of Farnham RC in 44.11.
