The Syd’s had a great turn out for these two crazy events at the weekend, with 5 first claimers and 1 second claim rider across the two competitions. One potty individual (Derek Taylor) even did the infamous ‘double’. Some of the times were not too shabby either:
Catford – Yorks Hill
29th – Iain Akhurst 2.13.9
71st – Derek ‘The Double’ Taylor 2.44.5
The event winner was Robert Gough (Arctic Premier RT) in 1.49.2.
Bec – White Lane
56th – Andy Ross 2.28.1
60th – Mark Newton 2.33.2 (Second Claim Member)
72nd – Paul Butler 2.41.3
77th – Derek ‘The Double’ Taylor 2.49.3
88th – Robert Robbins 3.21.6
The event winner was a Junior who rides for Team de Ver by the name of Germain Burton, he flew up the hill faster than all the favourites to win in a course record time of 1.45.3.
