The final evening 10 of the season saw the biggest start sheet in many years with 28 riders.
This topped the previous week’s record field and was a fantastic way to finish the evening 10’s, leaving just the hill climb at Wier Wood to complete the season.
The conditions weren’t quite as good as the previous week, the reasonable SW wind denting the top end times just enough to prevent anyone breaking 24 mins.
However that didn’t prevent some from improving their times, in particular Paul Turner with a new PB and John Geal putting in an excellent time. Unfortunately Graham Powell was the only non finisher, having gone off course so commiserations to him
As always, many thanks to Chris Daniels, and Richard Blackmore for time keeping and pushing off, and chairman Steve Dennis for marshalling.
The final event next week is the hill climb on Legsheath Lane, near Wier Wood reservoir at 18:45.
It is only 1.5 miles but what it lacks in distance it makes up for in a test of your legs and lung capacity. – See you there!
