In the McFarlane Trophy, worked out on a scratch basis on all club 10 and 25 mile time trials, William picked up maximum points tonight and is now joint leader with Robin Millar. Last Tuesday’s 10 mile time trial was cancelled due to the weather, but the committee are hoping to reschedule it for later in the summer, so that means there are still 2 events to go in this competition, and everything still to play for!
Finally best wishes to regular competitor David Fowler (Northern DK) for a speedy recovery after his recent crash and nasty broken collar bone.
