Of eight Rocko’s entered only the over 60’s trio of Mike Harvey (1:03:20), John Dainty (56:30) and Peter Nix (52:51) completed the race. Mark Daniels was a victim of a pothole, falling and injuring an elbow. Hope he is okay, although I understand he was able to drive himself home. Paul Beattie was DNF after unshipping his chain, that’s all I heard about his mishap. The Freeman double act was DNS, probably wary of the conditions after their recent accidents, as was Pete Wilson.
Riding with a great deal of caution through the series of bends it was satisfying to have finished and got in a good workout.
