SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Harvester 2008

A possible three events in less than 15 hours for those that headed down to High Wycombe for this year's Harvester Trophy and JOK sprint. It all started with the JOK sprint in Bloom Wood, a couple of hours later the outcome of that sprint set your position in a chasing sprint final. Becca Roberts came home 9th in the Women's Open that was a UK Cup event, Katrin Harding was 2nd in the Junior Women just ahead of her sister Zoe, while Quentin Harding came 3rd in the Men's Vets. Chasing sprint results can be found here.

Two South Ribble teams competed in the Harvester, a night relay starting at 2am in the morning. A full account will appear in the next newsletter, but the night had both excitement and drama. On the first leg Katrin Harding came through the spectator control in the pack ahead of Cath Wilson, but Cath turned this all round in the last kilometre to come home first outright with Katrin not far behind. These positions were hard for the team to sustain, the SROCodiles (Cath Wilson, Quentin Harding, Chris Roberts, Zoe Harding, Matt Nash) finished 4th overall and 2nd Handicap by 4 mins while the SROChoppers (Katrin Harding, Steve Wilson, Sue Harding, John Ockenden, Steve McLean) were not far behind in 13th overall and 9th Handicap team. John Ockenden added to the drama by being disqualified for missing the last control, only to be reinstated after referring to the back up punch card on the EMIT brick.

Both teams did very well and all were enthusiastic, there was a superb mix of seniors and juniors in both teams and all performed well. Harvester results can be found here.
