Big thanks to David Cheshire, Jackie Henley and Mark Gibbs for time keeping and marshalling. We've made it to round 10, so I will endeavour to get league tables posted over the next week. Ashley B next week. Solo TT or road bike 2-up (basically a chain gang... Andy Bathe 😉), one or two laps!
PS. One final mention for our esteemed Chairman David Cheshire who rode the course for an on-the-day risk assessment before the event, knocking 2 minutes off his best ever race effort. There are rumours he was on a TT bike with pointy hat. The force is strong in this one, and as the Jedi Master Yoda said "the dark side of the Force are they, easily they flow… If once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny. Consume you, it will…"
We’re at Ashley next week. 1900 start. Check your inboxes.
