Next Wednesday is the final fling, the last club 10 of the season. It’s been quiet for 10s this year compared to previous years, but it would be good to have as many people out riding or supporting. A drink at the Crown afterwards. Same place, same time.nofearParticipant21 August 2014 at 18:26Post count: 604
Thanks to everybody who rode on Wednesday evening and to all of the riders and helpers who took part in the 16 club 10’s that we ran this season. We have had all sorts of course issues but the emergency course has served us well and Lee even managed to knock out a sizzling 21 on it.
The final Guardian Cup table was disclosed at the Crown in Lower Peover after the event and I can now reveal that the winner was Steve Malkin with 119 points but he was pushed hard in the last round when Mark Dixon put in his 5th ride to record 117 points. Third on the podium was Stuart Ward with 109 points just edging out Andy Leather with 108. Congratulations to those riders and everybody else as we have seen a lot of improvements through the season.
Steve proved that you can build week on week producing several PB’s and going from his slowest time of 30:28 (19.69 mph), in the practice round in April, to a PB of 26:31 (22.63 mph), in Round 10 in August. That’s a 4 minute (3 mph),improvement in just 4 months. He was the only person to ride every single round so well done Steve.
One final word for our Club Secretary Ady who has been saving himself all season for the big win in the Final Fling. 😮 By his standards he has been simmering all season but he finally boiled over last night slashing 3 mins 20 secs off his best all year going from a 26:51 to a 23:31. 😮 😮 He won by nearly 1 minute ahead of Jim Duffy, who was nearly caught on the line. 😮 😮 😮
…. oh did I mention that he was on a tandem. 😳 Great effort and all good training for the 24 hour next year Ady. 😉
