Only one team represented the Sydenham in this year’s event, made up of Richard Hallett, Dave Twin and Mark Newton. What greeted them on the morning was severe winds and colder temperatures than of late. The guys flew out to the Ashford turn, but then had to stuggle into the headwind on the longest leg, before getting the benefit of the wind again on the final leg to the finish. They recorded a time of 1.01.23 to take 5th. The winners were Phil Bull, Gary Birch and Neil Archibald of V.C.Elan in 57.21.
