Re: wed 31st JulyK37/6G 2laps RESULTS - Handicap

Both riders just outside their PB's from earlier in the year, Keith missing by 20 seconds and George by 42 seconds. This means honours go to Keith with a handicap time of 30 mins and 20 secs with George on 30 mins and 42 seconds, scoring 40 points and 39 points.
