Dave Twin, Steve Thurgood and Matt Lucas were all down for this one on the rolling Harrietsham course. Dave unfortunately was DNS on the day leaving Matt and Steve to represent the club on a dry but windy morning. Steve off number 2, having never ridden the course before, recorded a time of 01:03:05 for 26th and Matt riding his first open time trial for a number of years off number 79 recorded a 01:04:10 for 29th place.

At last a nice day and the chance to wear a skin suit as it is supposed to be worn. It was about 15 degrees wind and rising as the Sydenham boys made their way from the hall along the rolling A24 to the start at Kingsfold. The breeze was light but got up a bit as the morning went on. The one thing no one was warning of was the temporary traffic lights on the railway bridge about 2 miles into the event. This caught a lot of people out. 2nd claim member Mark Newton was the first member to start and flew around this sporting course to finish in 56.54. He didn’t hang around afterwards as he had two tickets for centre court at Wimbledon in the afternoon and witnessed Andy Murray’s win. Dave Twin was off three minutes later and finished in 1.00.37. Lastly Pete Mahoney finishing in 1.00.34 even with getting caught up at the traffic lights. There were a few riders who had recorded 52 minutes but at the time of leaving the overall winner appeared to be Steve Kane of Brighton Excelsior in 52.18.

When will this wind disappear? Another race met with strong winds, this time coming from the South was what faced the field. Due to the on-going new development on the Horsham course the event was moved to this course further south. A rather sporting course with the wind thrown in for good measure resulted in slower times. First Sydenham rider of was Richard Birtwhistle who unfortunately did not finish. Dave Twin was second off followed just two minutes later by Pete Mahoney riding his first 50. It only took Pete about 15 miles to haul David in. There then followed a bit of a yo-yoing as the Pete went away Dave closed the gap etc till the last few miles when Pete finally disappeared out of Dave’s sight. Dave finished with a 2.10.28 and Pete with 2.06.47. At the time of leaving Steve Dennis, East Grinstead CC looked like he had picked up another win in 1.51.42.
