The Phoenix C.C. (Aintree) Kavanagh 25 mile Time Trial on
course D25/3 1st July 07
I don't think anybody was expecting a dry race, so no disappointments
Although it was quite dull it wasn't cold and there was only a slight breeze.
The 25 Riders, including the pair on the tandem, all off to a flying and very
wet start, but it didn't dampen their spirits as they soon reached the downhill
hill blast to the by-pass.
The rain eased off during the race and the wind picked up in a favorable direction
and all the riders experienced a fast finish.
One unfortunate DNF and a potential winner was S.
Hankey. He had lucky escape after his front tub punctured in Ben Lane.
Back at the results board, and all the remaining riders were safely back,
the sun decided to appear, which added some much needed warmth to the riders
and marshals following the early morning spell in the pouring rain.
Mr Leach, as ever, looking after his brood was on hand to share his flask
of hot drink.
