Racing round-up

The Wanderers were spread far and wide on the evening of Tuesday 10th August.  Dom Lowden came a fine 5th out of 20 competitors in a Diss CC 10-mile event in Norfolk in a time of 22:56.  Roger Hutchings covered the same distance in 26:31 as he finished 13th out of 31 in a rather lumpier East Grinstead CC run event.

He took that to the extreme two nights later as he finished 4th out 6 in a Worthing Excelsior CC hill climb, covering the Washington Bostal climb alongside the A24 in 1 minute 51.99 seconds.

It was then back to the flat, but still on the road bike, on Saturday 14th where Roger claimed 3rd position from 8 starters in a fine time of 24:53 in an Epsom CC 10-mile TT on the A31 near Farnham.

Dom Lowden was back in action the following morning as Diss CC hosted a 25-mile TT where he came 15th out of 43 in 59 minutes and 11 seconds.

That same morning on the A3 north of Petersfield in a 10-mile event run by (the appropriately named) a3crg conditions were ripe for fast times as Nick Dwyer ripped off a rapid 19:54 for 14th and Peter Baker a fine 22:30 to place 53rd of the 74 starters.
