The official Chrissy Cup results

Cliffie smiles whilst everyone else reflects on what might have been if only they had followed his strict rules – no french fries, no coca cola, train 15 times a week, no sex before the big race, and liberal helpings of stuff he learnt about during the 90’s working for Biosym, a molecular modelling software company.

For some reason Leechy gave me these results in order of achievement. A cruel thing to do in my eyes, but at least i can apply editorial control

Chrissy Cup – Cliff retains the crown!

Balmoral resident Cliff Holloway repeated his 2004 win in style this morning, beating twenty odd competitors to the finish line.
Cliff holds his trophiesBomberI did it all for my boy

Other notable performances included Chris ‘Bomber” Lancaster. Savvy Derek Nix was also able to surf along to a useful third place.

Cliff put everything down to the more rigorous Balmoral training regimen he’s enjoyed in the second half of the year, though he did express some mild disappointment with the final placings for fellow Balmoral Boys Phil Cronin and Clive Roberts. Both intended to play pacesetters for Cliffy, but blew up after 35 metres and Duracell man had to go it alone.

As always congratulations to the nine people who managed to keep Charles ”Chuckie” Stewart in 10th place. A single number placing still eludes the old man.
All the results, and more commentary, will be published very soon – in the meantime enjoy some of the photos from the day. You can also click on the images above.
