Ely & District C.C. '25(Course B25/1)

Date: Sunday 09 February, 1997

Men: Andy Horner (VC Camelot) 56:49
     ...UEA RESULTS...  
    Name                          Time      Position (with ranking)
    John Swindells                1:03:57   11

When the wind blows in the Fens, it blows.
John had to settle for outside the top-ten as Cambridge Uni riders Tony Hornbuckle and Robert English slipped in before him.
Unfortunately, the riders had to contend with cross-wind most of the way on the exposed A142, and pointy-hat wearers John and Andy experienced turbulence problems; Andy gave up when his helmet swung right over his face!

Looking on the bright side, it was a good test of resilience, and hats off to Mike Hutchinson (Cambs Uni CC) with his second-place time of 57:17.
