On a cold and un-giving morning there were some inspiring and also troubled rides.  Andy Davies pulled off an all time  PB and was 3rd overall  from  the 118  competitors and deservedly won  the Club’s  Brocklehurst trophy. There was a battle royal for the  Handicap award which went to old fox Rob Barrett closely followed by Philip Porteous and Dena Ford.  Despite the strong chilly wind Dena  PB’d for the course and she  was comfortably the  fastest woman  from the 30 who rode.  Phil  Porteous also pulled off an all time PB claiming it was all due  to the turbo sessions.   And Sally White gave a gutsy  performance in the  conditions and she goes home with the Longmarkers trophy. Sadly Pete Lawrence retired  due to an unlucky mechanical and Chris Ford hit the wall and  found himself on the grass,  probably not yet fully recovered from  recent illness. Alan Simmonds played it safe and decided not to ride because of a back injury.
