2019 Crowhurst Series, Round 1 blog post
So, the first event of the Bec C.C. club competition 2019 got underway on 3rd March, with a few hardy riders braving the wet and very windy conditions for two laps of the Crowhurst course (GS/382), equalling 12.7 miles in total. Four riders (Shaun K, Mark, Shaun M & Tony) took to the start line and set-off in minute intervals (apart from Tony who started two minutes later due to a mechanical on the line).
Another fast ride from Tony meant he took the scratch & handicap honours on the day, exactly matching his previous best time of 33m 24s, a solid ride from Shaun Kennedy with a 38m 54s secured him 2nd in the scratch, with Mark being the next nearest to his best-time, with a 39m 37s, giving him 2nd on handicap. Unfortunately, Shaun M had a blow-out half way round the second lap which ended in a DNF.
