It was a damp morning with a stiff breeze when Mark Newton and Dave Twin set off around this course full of roundabouts. The duo rode well together with Mark having the advantage up the drags and Dave on the descents due to his disc. In the process they caught Bob Loader and Marsyse Chapman for 12 minutes in the earlier starting tandem event (It wasn’t until later it was discovered they had suffered from 3 punctures during the event and eventually packed). Mark and Dave crossed the finish line with a very respectable 58.23. There weren’t many results on the board at the time of leaving.
