Results

Now that I have dried off, here are the results!

The quite unpleasant conditions put several riders off on the day (though Jim had let me know he wasn't able to ride earlier in the day. Jason, Robert and Steph all rode out to Astwood in quite heavy rain. Being already quite wet, there wasn't much to lose in racing. For those who arrived by car and were still dry and warm, the prospect of hauling themselves round a 10 mile circuit was quite understandably unappealing (though maybe Martyn was made of sterner stuff!).

Anyway, the four riders found themselves racing through the heavy rain, though at some point between Chicheley and North Crawley the rain stopped and it got a it warmer. No let up in the gloomy conditions, which made it difficult to read my Garmin, at least. At least this was a single lap, unlike last week.

So congratulations to the depleted field. Robert took first place on actual and on standard. We went to the pub afterwards, where it transpired Jason had left his phone with us - he retrieved it from me on my ride home!

Many thanks to Katja for timekeeping and Mark for sign placing.
