Ken Stokes Memorial 10

Riders entered : Richard Woodward (45th on 25:42), Ben Hardisty (scratched, left his shoes behind), Paul Winkley (41st on 25:23) & Ted Boorman (54th on 27:21)

Richard: “There certainly weren’t any good times for that course that I saw. Jim
Cheek’s time was the best I saw at 22:00. There was a cross wind from
the left that made it hard on the outward leg.”

Mike’s thoughts: “Richard escaped the rain, unlike Paul and Ted (and yours truly, who decided
it would be a good idea to stand about getting wet for the hell of it….). I wasn’t concious of any obvious wind but I guess the winning time of 21:27 was a fair indicator of the conditions.”
