What a great start to the 2020 season for Eddie Allen. This weekend he has achieved some pretty spectacular results and beaten a quality opposition. Good job he has rejoined the Redmon!
Yesterday’s (14 March) Farnborough and Camberley 10 on the Bentley course (H10/8) he finished in 20:39, and came 2nd. Alan Murchison of Drag2Zero was only 20 seconds faster at 20:19, so he only just lost out on first place. Third place man Ronnie Stone (Islington Cycling Club) finished in 20:43. More importantly for Eddie, his mate Oliver Bridgewood (of Bath Cycling Club, and GCN fame) was 5th and 33 seconds down. The field was 39 riders. And today (15 March) he bettered that result at the Southern Counties Hardriders event, a 21 mile two lap sporting course south of Godstone. He finished in FIRST place with 52:25, beating Mark Smith of Crawley Wheelers into second with 52:41. The third placed rider was Colin McDermott of Festival Road Club with 54:21.
And with no other Redmon riders having competed this season yet, he leads both the Spoco and Club Events Competitions. So every one else needs to get out, do some training and enter a few events, otherwise with this performance, it’s going to be a whitewash this year – he’ll win everything.
