The morning was made up of a strong blustery wind and rain coming every so often at a 45 degree angle. As a result about 25 people did not show up to start this event. None of these riders however were from the Sydenham. Bob Loader was the first club rider of a trio off. This was his first open event in quite a while and unfortunately he suffered a broken spoke near the turn and had a rubbing brake block all the way back. Bob eventually finished with a 1.18.40. By the time Ed Rieu started the rain had actually stopped but the roads remained very wet. This made all the roundabouts rather entertaining. Ed finished with a 1.03.36. Last rider off was Dave Twin who believes he did about a 1.01.40 but was credited with a 1.01.09. The event was won by Pete Tadros of In Gear Quickvit RT in 53.48.
