On a very cold morning, six members of the club ventured down into Surrey to ride this sporting event. The times were as follows:
Richard Hallett 1.17.51 Luke Evans..... 1.17.52 David Twin..... 1.20.38 Graham Ward.... 1.32.20 Bob Loader..... 1.36.01 Mike Thorogood. 1.42.16 (having badly gone off course)
Quite incredibly only 1 sec split Richard and Luke. The earlier starters (Graham, Dave and Bob) got the worst of the cold conditions as it was -2 just after start. Later on the temperature did raise itself a couple of degrees. Paul Mill – Team Edwardes won the event overall in 1.07.38.
