Super Simon Macgowan came home quickest when the lord of all things to do with adjusted times etc (Mick), had calculated times vs age after the Xmas cup run at Stadhampton yesterday. Simon said that it’s the first time he’s won anything since he was 5 at a kids birthday party (he forgets winning the love of his lovely wife and the admiration of his 2 up partner).
He has Pete Annells to thank as he missed the start (we’ve all done it at Stadders), and left last, so the flooded road and the tail wind was probably helping him the most in the end.
We also had some old friends in the field of 14- Llewylen (who’s now racing in Belgum and France), JP and JP senior (who went to Fairmile first), and another nice gentleman who I’ll namecheck when I can look at the sign on sheet.
Conditions were ok- chilly and there was a little water across the road in Cuxham, and a tidy tailwind on the way back as a late xmas gift from TT Santa.
So big up to Simon- I have a feeling we’ll be seeing his name on a number of the club trophies over the coming years.
And a quick reminder….
