A slightly smaller field (shrunk in the recent rain?) took on this very wet and muddy course over Aconbury Hill, and Croft certainly were somewhat weakened for this 3rd race. Star of the day was Nicky, who got off to a good start and held on to finish 3rd (42.51), nearly 2 minutes ahead of Alison. Rachel is also making great progress – 21st out of 47 (51.23), ahead of Liza (24th, 52.05). Kim, (36th, 58.07) making a welcome return, finished just ahead of Karen (37th, 58.21). Dan was the first male home, in 16th (43.44), with Simon 19th (44.31). Jon had a good run (24th, 46.37) beating young Dave (29th, 46.53), Dave A (34th, 47.20) and Dave G (37th, 48.42) – who just pipped Neil P (38th, 48.46). Ian Price (44th, 50.11) appeared again, putting pressure on Steve Herington, but failed by 12 seconds to be first over 60. Guy (55th, 52.39) was first over 65, chased by Tom (58th, 53.00) and brother Brian (63rd, 53.30). Frank crossed the line in 73rd (55.08) still looking relatively fresh!
