New Years Day 10 mile 2014

This very popular event run by Southborough & District Wheelers on the Q10/10 course attracted a quality field of 86 riders including 1 tandem.

Conditions favoured the early starters with increasing wind and rain as the morning progressed.Four Thorntons commited themselves to limiting their New Years Eve alcohol consumption and represent the club.

Russ probably only had 4 pints of Guinness instead of the usual 5. Nick and Danny, both sporting brand new shiny TT bicycles, Russ, nothing new and shiny for him and New Years Day regular Eric.

Best of the bunch for us was Nick with a very good 26.04, placing him 19th overall, closely followed by Danny 28.14, Russ 30.46 and Eric 32.41.

The event was won by Mike Piper, Abelio SFA RT with 22.16. 1 DNF and 25 DNS.   MP.
