Once again the temperature gauge was reading 1 degree on the car as we approached the hall for this event that as per usual had a massive prize list. Unfortunately none of which ended up in the pockets of the 3 Sydenham riders taking part. Yet again Dave Twin was one of the first off and noticed the cold conditions on the decent and to the first turn, eventually finishing in 1.04.52 (61st). Steve Thurgood hit the course next and finished in 1.02.57 (52nd). Last club rider off was Ian O’Hara riding his first time trial in a number of years, finished in 1.02.31 (49th). The course has masses of potholes, but even this didn’t seem to slow down race winner Jonathan Parker, Team Botrill who finished in a new course record of 50.48. The woman’s course record also fell to Bronwen Ewing, Rye and District Wheelers in 59.39 (29th).
