Following on from the request to include more racing results, please find below my
results from April onwards. I’ve tried to ride most weekends and at the Herne Hill
track league each week. Unfortunately my road/circuit results seem to have generally
gone backwards since the start of the year, but I’ve gradually improved on the track.
I think the road may be down to crashing in April in one of the LVRC events after I
added a note to the last results I sent in encouraging members to do the events
because they were safer than BC races!

As a footnote to the article Val added to the DLN last month on our open 10 from
1983 when Dave Lloyd broke comp record, I can remember drawing up and writing
the start sheet for the 240 rider field, which Eddie Starsmeare organised and doing
a “PB” 23.37, I was 2nd juvenile although fortunate that most of the best juveniles
at the time were off doing the GHS 10!
