The 20 riders who turned out for this event were fortunate that we managed to avoid the heavy showers (some extremely heavy) that plagued us during the day.  We did however suffer strong winds that made the opening leg to Chicheley something of a trial, and aero wheel handling quite twitchy at times.

I didn’t hang around after the event, as it was getting darker and windy.  I also didn’t see most of the guys for the pre-race banter as I was quite late getting up to Astwood – I assume Gilbert (“Hard man of the North”) Wheelwright is still using the tribars and pointy hat!  Stuart Tarry’s winning time of 22:55 was pretty quick for an evening like this (even if he claimed he only showed up because I was going to give him an entry for his ’10’ on 30th August- which I forgot anyway).

Tonight’s event was the penultimate evening event of the club events: after next week’s Stony Stratford event, we shift to Saturday mornings.
