Driving down in sunshine a with little wind it looked like it was going to be a great day for the later starting small field in the solo event. By the time you got to the hall however there was mist which held the temperature down to 4 degrees which meant gloves were a must have. Dave Twin was the sole club ride in Sydenham colours and went round in 1.03.16 (11th). Dave was caught in the final couple of miles by a very smooth riding Ben Wimpory in his Loughborough Students CC strip who finished in 58.49 (4th) picking up the £10 junior prize. Second claim member Mark Newton carried on with early season form recording 58.18 (3rd) picking up £10 for his scratch ride and £20 for finishing 2nd fastest vet. The event winner was Steve Berry, Team Swift-Allsports in 54.34.
