Virtual League Racing Series – Race 59

Despite my absence through illness we missed out on keeping our Age-graded top spot by less than 1%. Excellent performances and turnout. All being well I’ll manage to post an effort for the last race of the series – Week 60!

And, as I can’t resist, another photo from the Alf Scorer Collection. From left to right Jack Sankey, a young Peter Markham [Leicester WC] and the great Lol Allen [Sheffield UH].

I think this might well be the same race as featured in last week’s image of Jack, John Dowling and Albert Staines, suggesting it is an Open race rather than a championship, Chris Bolton wonders if it might be either the Sheffield or Gomersal 15 miles.
