So the Norland sufferfest is over for another year and in due course the cellar of suffering will re-open for roller racing.(Probably first Tuesday in November - watch this space!)
Now for the stats:
We had a total of 33 individuals riding this year, an increase of 3 over 2016 but still shy of our best year in 2015 when we had 39. Nonetheless a reasonable season.
The top of the two lap places in our league table remained unchanged - Chris Smith retained top spot although he didn't ride this year - pressue of work has taken over....(Correction. ANM)
Martin Gargett retained his second spot and DID ride but was unable to reduce his 2016 time.
Paul Cre was displaced from third spot by Ben Stead before his season was cut short by injury.
Fastest lady spot is still held by Sarah Burbidge although she too did not ride this season having also suffered at the hands of our third-world road surfaces. :(
Second lady saw Nikola Matthews displace Catherine Sweeney down to third spot.
Of those who also rode last year nine improved their PB times with the largest such improvement being made by Nikola who reduced her time by 2.17.
Well done to everyone who rode. My thanks to those who stood in as Watchmeister in my absence.
The final lists are appended below:
