Club 10 08-Aug-19

This was the last 2019 club 10.  Last week’s had been cancelled due to road works and traffic lights right by the start.  The road works were still there almost up to the A24, but several events over the past week had run, by moving the start and finish a few yards along.  So that is what we did!  We didn’t want to miss the last one.

Another very warm day and evening, and very humid. The riders, obviously didn’t mind, as there was not one over 25 minutes.   Eight riders tonight, three Redmon.  The fastest overall was Ed Clark with an amazing 21:36 and fastest Redmon rider was Eddie Allen with 21:53.

Many thanks to our club mates and others that help run the event, as organiser (Derek), timekeepers (Roger/Clive), pusher off (Malcolm) and marshal (Geoff).

As this is the last 10 of the season, I have worked out the points table for interest, but note it is only draft and may change when the final list is put together.  As you can see, we only had a total of eights Redmon riders take part!  Don’t you think that this was a bit of a poor show?  And no surprise Eddie Allen is at the top:
