Doing no more than keeping up with results. Hoping you are enjoying Easter despite the cold. Sadly I’m not sure when I’ll be appearing in person. The latest news on my broken foot has not lifted my spirits, recovery being talked about in terms of months. For my sins, I’m in a choir, who are rehearsing ‘Always look on the Bright Side’ as a comic number for a variety show. Finding it difficult to be in harmony with the sentiment! Take care, keep training and beware careering horses!
Roy Gunnett reports:
We had a good turnout of 13 for the race – this included 2 guests from the Midlands, Stuart Edgar and Glyn Jones.
The usual course was used, comprising 1 mile out, 3 laps of a hilly circuit and then 1 mile home.
It rained incessantly throughout the race.
Peter Crahan took an early lead and the rest of the field was soon strung out once the first of the hills was hit.
Stuart Edgar had an excellent race – he caught Peter and overtook him to win the scratch race.
John Crahan won the handicap race and therefore the Allison Trophy. John walked a particularly strong final 2 miles and picked up a number of places.
