De Laune CC 25 Sun 3rd Aug – Q25/20 (Harrietsham)

Even though there was a lot of notice and promotion of this event in the end only Rob Royston and Dave Twin appeared on the start sheet for this Fred Peachy memorial event. As the club is 125 years old a lot of effort was put into the event with free water bottles for all riders and an amazing prize list. The morning was bright but a little cooler than recent weekends. The strong winds of the previous day had died down a lot, with the breeze being against you on the longest leg from Ashford to Leeds. Dave was the first of the club duo off and finished in 1.03.05 (29th). Rob rode even better on this sporting course to finish in 1.01.26 (20th). It looked like a bit of a fix as there were prizes for being closest to pre-specified times and Rob and Dave won £12.50 each for being closest to 1.01.30 and 1.03.00 respectively. The overall event was won for a third year by Kevin Tye, VeloRefined Aerosmiths in 52.46 who picked up £125.00 for his efforts.
