East Grinstead Club 10 21st July

With the planned outing to Crystal Palace looking unlikely, due to the weather and possible cancellation of the event, Matt and Dan Lucas decided to ride the East Grinstead CC 60th Anniversary Club 10 on the G10/39 Horne Course. It was a really enjoyable event despite getting soaked on the 10 mile ride out, Matt regretting choosing the TT bike over the road bike when navigating the lethal corners on this unfamiliar twisty circuit and suffering the confidence shattering sight of Ben Instone and Steve Dennis waiting in the car park at the start. Needless to say Ben and Steve were first and second in v.impressive 22:26 and 23:28 respectively. Matt managed a 25:30 and Dan riding his standard road bike in his first ever TT did a very creditable 26:49, on what The Grinstead Boys described as a hard night. Full result available here!

It was a really friendly event and the EGCC boys are a good bunch, as for the circuit its surprisingly enjoyable and leaves you thinking “I want to ride that again I reckon I can go alot quicker”. A recommended way of spending a Tuesday night if your at a loose end!
