Close behind was Bobby De'ath in 24:51 followed by Geoff Muller 25:05 for third place.

Just one junior, Adam Cross rode that evening finishing in 27:01 while other Breckland riders were Iain Dawson 26:15, John Perium 26:41, Rodney Hobbs 27:03, Mark Fairhead 29:24, Paul Cross 31:26, Lloyd Thompson 33:23 and Martin Badham 33:58.

Making up the 17-strong field were second-claim members Peter Harmon 31:23 and Dave Smith 32:09 together with E Dean (Norwich ABC) 25:27, O Milk 25:45 (Diss and DCC), P Lynch 27:39 (East Anglian CC) and J Ethridge 27:41 (North Norfolk Wheelers).

Still mourning the death of founder member Albert Saunders, the club has been further saddened by the untimely death of the popular Aubrey De'ath.

Known to many in the cycling world as a “pusher off” or “propulsion executive,” he was the person who held the riders as they waited for the “five, four, three, two, one - go!” from the start timekeeper.
