|Notes [written in 2015]|
|Looking for trends|
|Early starters seem to fair best. Perhaps they get the best levels of oxygen.|
or they might be better organised, better focussed and, God forbid, actually get warmed up properly as well.
Is there nothing folk will stoop to?
Margaret Smiths time of 37.07 has never been bettered by a female
What on earth is a Dawes landscaper (as ridden by Chris Thompson) ?
|Notes - attached to the original results (Eccles humour still to emerge)|
Thanks to Betty Ann Crick who has unearthed the results.
The tin can trophy was awarded to Chrsi Thomson for the best time of the day. John Tomlinson received the Cryto Bantam picture for a close second. A tin man T-shirt went to Paul Vincent for the third and a Tin woman T-shirt was awarded to Margaret Smith who was the quickest lady.
A very big thanks goes to everyone in the Loughborough Pheonix, aspecially to our time-keepers Muriel and Stuart, to marshals Phylis Williams, Pam Gould, Eil Marshall and Alan Skeavington , and to pusher-off Martyn Temple. An even bigger thanks goes to the very kind people who donated cakes and the life-saving provision of tea supplies, Eileen Johnson, Phylis Williams and all their helpers who make this one of the jolliest events in the calendar.
