With a very hot 30°C heat and with a fierce wind, 20 cyclists braved the conditions for the race and went for it.
The race involved five laps of the airfield amounting to 34km. It is a well-known destination for the BFG cyclists and has been used many times over the years; however, this was last race before the camp is closed under rebasing, and handed over to the German authorities.
