Final details for the next street event have been published.

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Blackburn results

The provisional results for the Blackburn event are now on the web - any queries to me, although I will be away from Friday lunchtime until Sunday evening. There will be at least 2 additions to the results when those stuck in traffic do their runs on Friday evening. Very pleasing to have a number of new faces, especially John Embrey who is going to be a 'one to beat' for the rest of the series. As Chris says some people got quite high time penalties probably due to the hilly nature of the area and their over enthusiasm also, unfortunately there were some transposition errors. Overall though I believe a good time was had by all both inside and outside the pub. So now onto Kirkham. It is very important that you read the final details as Ray has devised a very different scoring system. See you there - Bob

SROC's popular Night Street League started the new season with a return to Blackburn North and the Alexandra. The hilliness of the area seemed to catch out quite a few with some punitive penalties deducted for lateness. Add your route to RouteGadget to compare with others'. Scores for the event will be published shortly.

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) SROC success in Montenegro

Miriam & David Rosen both won medals in last week's Montenegro 5-day event. The races, organised by Park World Tour, featured sprint races around picturesque old towns such as Dubrovnik and Kotor and a middle distance forest race in the limestone mountains.
Miriam won three of the stages in the W65 class and won by 11 minutes overall. The last day was a tricky sprint round the old town of Herceg Novi and half of the M60s failed to visit one or more controls so David unexpectedly came 3rd overall.

As the darkness rapidly approaches the witching hour of 6.30 pm so it is time to turn our thoughts to the adventure of the next Street League series. So dig out your kit, sharpen your pencils, check your torches and prepare yourselves for the challenges. In just over two weeks time it will be a return to Blackburn and details of the venue can be found here. A menu for the night is here. The full series with dates and areas can be found using this link. Many thanks to all those who have agreed to put on an event and I look forward to seeing 'old' faces and meeting newcomers. See you there - Bob
