It was the typical event we’ve come to expect from the Grinnies – well organised, well marshalled, well supported and well run plus a very nice day for a change, although a bit on the cold side for those who weren’t moving about.
Steve D did a great job and the ladies in the HQ, Carla, Ute, Lorraine and Ange(after her marshal duties) dispensed drinks and cakes and did the result board.
Results were as follows :- 1st Will Mangar In Gear RT 52.26 2nd Conall Yates In Gear RT 52.45 3rd Steve Dennis EGCC 52.47 (incl 40 sec late start) 4th Niall Digby Sigma Sport 55.26 5th Dave Shepherd GS Stella 55.45 6th Sean Yates In Gear RT 56.54 7th Rob Pelham Lewes Wand. 56.55 8th Tom Glandfield Lewes Wand. 57.01 9th Roger Smith Southdown Bikes 57.33 10th Tony Reeves GS Stella 57.36 Chris Yates EGCC 1.00.02 Alan MacInnes EGCC 1.00.53 1st Vet on std Mel Roberton Worthing Excel 2nd Vet on std Steve Dennis EGCC 1st Team IN Gear RT
So really it was a Yates family affair with Mum and Dad also in attendance. Sean said he was prevented from going any faster by his heart pacemaker!
