Team Beasant Strikes Fear Into Festival 7.KM Time Trial

Dateline Monday 7thMay, High Easter.

Lea Valley CC, (Team Beasant) launched its assault on the Counties Festival 7 KM with a 3 pronged attack by Lorraine, Mick and Patrick, with support from El Presidente, (Ian Taylor) and El Pantero Pinko, (Mike Keen).

Braving teeming rain and high winds our glorious quintet, outdid El Simpson, who wimped out of the Festival 2 up25, claiming it was too slippery for his posh wheels.

To be fair, the winning Maldon pair, Neil Harvey & Mark Beattie, did have water pour out of their disc wheels when they took their bikes away from the HQ.

Fastest in the 7 KM was Patrick, Then Mike K, Mike B, Lorraine and El Presidente in his customary lanterne rouge.

The 2 Mikes and El Presidente took a real hammering with gale force winds and a sudden squal with icy hail, reducing them to a serious grovel.
