Although the roads were wet from overnight rain, it was a fine and sunny morning with little wind. Another record field for recent years, but I think that PZW were outnumbered by MBH. I’m going to have to insist that any PZW riders who want to miss a race in future must bring a note from their Mum.
Interestingly all the PZWs were on standard road bikes while many of the MBHs had tri-bars. Someone may care to do a Phd on this. Anyway, in the absence of visiting pros local riders prevailed and competition was close, but a certain amount of anononomity was preserved because there were no surnames on the results sheet. Tristan was a little slower than last year, but an amazing performance considering his extensive recent noctural activities (which even took preference over the Big Breakfast Ride – so must be serious and may have to be discussed at the next committee meeting). A big thank you for Terry organising the race yet again and to Neil for helping to officiate. [26/12/07]
