Crawley Wh 41.59 Sporting – 25/03/2016 (GS/196)

After a year of absence due to fog and road works problems this great sporting event actually took place without any problems this year. As per recent weeks the prevailing wind meant that the wind was basically with you on the way out and made things a little tougher on the way back, especially on the last few miles climbing to the finish. Thankfully though it wasn’t that cold. Unfortunately the turnout from the climb wasn’t as good as in previous years with Steve Thurgood and Dave Twin being the only Sydenham representation. Steve did a 1.56.08 (35th) and Dave 1.55.32 (33rd). 2nd claim member Mark Newton didn’t finish due to a puncture. The overall winner was Pete Morris – Team ASL360 in 1.36.32
