Dusk Til Dawn 2010 Review

2010 was the 3rd year in a row that TROG attended Thetford’s Dusk Til Dawn, 12hr overnight race.  2008 was a washout, 2009 was a dust-fest and 2010 once again saw the rain-gods conspiring against us.

There were many teams riding for TROG, with all the categories covered (solo, 2s, 3s, 4s, male and female).  As the rain took hold the track started to deteriorate; laps that took 1hr to begin with soon turned into 2hrs and over.



As the night drew on and the conditions worsened, different teams tackled the challenge ahead in their own ways.  Some decided that it wasn’t worth ruining their bikes and potentially themselves and called it a night, whereas others saw fewer competitors in their way and battled on until the end!

Congratulations to Dawn & Tina for getting on the podium and very well done to Carl & Dan and Jules & Mike for making the top 10.  A special mention goes out to Steve Manser who battled on all night in a solo effort to raise money for the James Paget Hospital in Lowestoft and West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds.
