SCCU 50

…..Further to what others might have reported, I can imagine there
has been a certain amount of mickey taking in the bar of the Rose &
Crown about Dennis needing a GPS on his bike to find his way around,
well todays little misadventure only confirms this jibe to the effect
that he is seriously cosidering a check up from the neck up!

A little after half way in this mornings SCA 50 champs the course
details clearly stated “Straight on 2nd exit to New Bridge RBT where
TURN”, so what did I do? Went flying staight over without a thought,
even if there were about a dozen marshalls in bright yellow tabards
waving frantically.

I still don’t know why I did It. It was one of those senior moments I
guess.
Anyway, I timed myself over the extra section of road that I did after
the event and it took just under 2 mins so I probably would still not
have won the event as Mr. Harding (the winner) was 2mins 19secs up at
the finish.

I did get second place though and so doing, won the SCCU Presidents
Trophy and £55!
