The Ron Day Memorial MK Bowl races – Race 10 – 15th Aug 2023 (Sponsored by Church Lane Creative).
After a forced 2 week break while the MK Bowl hosted ‘Regga Land’, it was good to be back on a lovely warm, calm evening tonight.
Tonights race was the last qualifiying event for the Ron Day Memorial Cup.
One race was run staying inside the bowl due to lack of riders and helpers, although several riders said they enjoyed the format of the racing tonight. Great to have 2 new riders join us too.
The race split part way through into 3 groups, the front group staying away with the 2nd and 3rd groups then merging. The bunch sprint was won by an immpressive Michael DArcy from James Stewart. Congratulations to all our winners.
Many thanks to our helpers tonight who had a challenging evening sorting out kids and then debris on the track, huge thanks to Peter Nolan our first aider who proved men can multi-task 🤣 by helping out on the track debris and then helping me when I stood on something sharp that went through my shoe and into my foot!
We had the amazing ‘World Champion!’ Linda Dewhurst looking wonderful in her championship top marshalling for us tonight, massive congratulations Linda and thank you for helping out tonight.
2 more races to go this season so come and join us and bring your friends.
