An amazing entry of 185 for the first race in the national 10 mile league last night. Of these 58 were VTTA members but only three Midlands (stalwarts Andrew and Sue have other tuesday commitments sadly). Alastair Semple was first home in 23.54 (AAT 22.36), second was Adrian Osborn in 24.22 (AAT 22.06) and Mike Lythgoe third in 26.21 (AAT 22.33). With less than a minute between them on AAT a good scrap should be fought for top places over best four events. Round two same place same time next tuesday.
