17th May 2017 - Event Cancelled

Course: K10/25B Princethorpe A45 x 2

Continuous rain throughout the day and a pessimistic weather forecast forced an early decision, particularly as many riders had already withdrawn - the entry dwindling from 38 to less than 18. Although the rain predictably stopped at 7 pm there was still a lot of water on the roads. The dual-carriageway A45 is a particular problem as spray reduces driver visibility, while water collects near the kerb leaving riders with the problem of whether to plough through it or move out and risk being hit from behind. The decision was taken at 3 pm and no one complained.
