Captain's Corner - Unga Bunga!

24th February 2010

Moo Sports Evening – Event 1, Time Trial (with a difference)

A big thanks to you all, 31 attended the event, in what were the worst conditions seen this year. Great effort cheers boys.

A recap of the event. The plan was for the pairings to ride each section and for your average times to be as close to the average time set by Captain and Vice, who rode the sections the night before.

Our times were –

Forestry Climb
Pealy 7:08
Johnsy 9:02
Avg 8:05
Quarry Run
Pealy 7:16
Johnsy 6:44
Avg 7:00
Quarry / Carling
Pealy 11:48
Johnsy 11:46
Avg 11:47
Le Mans
Pealy 7:05
Johnsy 9:01
Avg 8:03

Scoring

The pair with the closest average time on each section will earn 15 points, the furthest away will earn 1. The overall winners will be awarded points per person which will go towards the Annual Sports Evening prizes, which will be £100, £50 & £30.


The Ride

Johnsy took the lead and headed off to Brokeback, he is sadistic! He wanted the event to take in Brokeback, Garlic, Drop of Death, Carling, Lisvane Jumps etc etc. Look out later in the year when he gets his way!!!


Forestry Climb

Noteable times were –

Gaz 6:15, Griff 7:05, Sam 7:58 (he did stick his leg past the finishing line some way out), Knotty 10:13 (you need some practice)

The top 5 closest were –

Berni & Enzo, 1.9 secs off the average time
Ant & Daf, 5.1 secs
Griff & Russ E, 6.1 secs
Spindle & Kev, 7.9 secs
Rog & Reg, 21.3 secs

Top Five scores after event 1 - Berni & Enzo 15 pts, Ant & Daf 14, Griff & Russ E 13, Spindle & Kev 12, Rog & Reg 11


Quarry Run

Noteable times were –
Beaker 5:27, Gaz 5:37, Berni 5:49, Harty 6:07, Option & Dean 6:10, Dickie 6:11

Poor Sam got a bit lost, with Scripsy leading the way ?????????????????

Top 5 closest were –

Spindle & Kev, 1 sec
Jim & Dai, 8.5 sec
Ant & Daf, 18.5 sec
Crockett & OBE, 28.5 sec
Rog & Reg, 29.5 sec

Scores after event 2 – Ant & Daf 27 pts, Spindle & Kev 27, Griff & Russ 23, Rog & Reg 22, Crockett & OBE 20

 

Quarry / Carling Loop

Noteable times were –
Gaz 8:59, Crockett 10:44, Harty 10:47, Griff 11:05, Rog 11:18

Knotty – Ooops – hope the shoulder is ok?

Top 5 closest were –

Jim & Dai, 0.7 sec
Beaker & Feather, 1.3 sec
Option & Chris, 2.3 sec
Crockett & OBE, 5.9 sec
Spindle & Kev, 7.7 sec

Scores after event 3 - Spindle & Kev 38, Jim & Dai 34, Ant & Daf 32, Crockett & OBE 32, Rog & Reg 31

At this point I advise the last five places were –

Last, Marty & Scrippsy 6, Jock & Knotty 7, Dickie & Sam 13, Tom & Russ L 13, Jesus, Newbury, Harty 22

 

Le Mans

Noteable time, this accolade has to go to Enzo 6:48.

Johnsy needs mentioning also, he clocked a ridiculous 9:01 on Tuesday night. This just goes to show he lacks stamina, goes off like a bullet and dies away at the end – Were any of you aware of this? I guess not as everyone smashed his time.

Top 5 closest were –

Beaker & Feather, 4.5 sec
Crockett & OBE, 18.2
Jock & Knotty, 20.7
Marty & Scripsy, 22.6
Jesus, Newbury, Harty, 29.5

THE RESULTS
Gentleman I do apologise, looks like were in for a month of gloating !!

My conclusions

Scrippsy – great effort young man, I know how hard it must have been trying to walk in that mud with your slippers on.

Tom & Russ, whatever tactics you were discussing on your way down, causing you to be late, were pointless, we are obviously quicker than you thought.

Knotty, I think you owe Jock a pint

Berni & Enzo, your last leg blew it for you, you were both just to damn fast.

And to our winners, CONGRATULATIONS Owgie & Kev, you obviously know our abilities, or was it just down to good old pot luck?

Hope you all enjoyed it and thanks again for turning up given the weather. If you want to see all the times, I will bring them next week.

Next week’s ride will be taken by Chris Watkins, he assures me he will be there!

Keep Mooing
