                      A FANTASTIC  RESULT.        WELL DONE THE LADIES !!

 Men's report :-  The race started at a blistering pace and everywhere you looked there was a black/red / white vest! While Paul battled with young track specialist James Roberts (Wxm) , Ollie fought tooth and nail through the pack from 10th on the first lap to come through strongly on the last lap to cross the line in 2nd spot just 17secs ahead of team mate Paul (1st V 40). Well done. The quartet of TIM T, SIMON B, IAN L and BRIAN R packed incredibly well(all under 45) to set up TEAM FIRST , FANTASTIC .  The remaining 8 Olympians all finished superbly , with the exception of RICH who sustained a nasty ankle injury on the last lap , but was determined to finish. CRAIG NICCOLLS making his debut for the club  surely has prize for widest smile of the day ! Maybe because Mum Jane and Dad Mike came along to watch . ( Jane still holds club v35 3k rec 12:17 1997) good to see NICK B and HARVEY M making a come back.
