||What an eventful afternoon this was, not one but two accidents on the M40 split the HRR convoy despite hurried mobile calls and very sudden manouvers to exit the motorway. Only 4 women made it to the start line Helen and Lisa with seconds to spare, it was brilliant that the team managed to maintain our overall third position. The mens race was delayed by 15 mins and consequently some of our displaced ladies were able to run in the longer event and score for the team (I spot a future quiz question !). This was enough to push the men's team up into 6th spot after two races with prospects of even better things to come.
Special mention to our debutants Jason, Charlotte and Lisa, it ain't usually like this folks!
