This week we are racing on the Stoke Hammond bypass course (F5d/10), with a start time of 1900.  Given this is an early season evening event, we'll probably try and get started on time.  Not only is this an interclub event with TeamMK, but it's the third counting event in the NBRC league.

Meet near the start, in the lane by the Little Chef (see course description for details).  The event is limited to 40 riders. Entry is £2.50 for member, £3.00 for non-members. Sign-on and collect your numbers at the meeting point near the start (see course description).

Note: I move completed club event reports from the front page of the site - only the upcoming event and the one just completed are generally on the front page. To view all the 2012 club event results, select Club Events from the header menu and select 2012 Club events.

Results 

A strong and chilly wind whisked the riders up the hill and out to the turn, but of course made the return leg rather tough.  I for one found it quite hard to hold a straight line on the run in to the finish.  So some very good times tonight.

Updated to include the Interclub competition points. Tony Farmborough says this is the new and improved 2012 points system! It's not obvious why this system has all the zeros. Also the North Bucks Road Club seems to have benefited from the mass exodus of riders from Team MK to twenty3c!

Thanks to Tony Farmborough for timekeeping and Bryan Scarborough for pushing off.  And it was good to see Gilbert back with the start crew keeping an eye on the money, after his recent illness.  There was apparently some concern about the possibility of a problem on the course (a lot of police activity) - Kevin Stokes kindly drove round the course to check all was OK.
