5 miles road walk

Lancresse to North Beach, Guernsey

Handicapper pipped on the line

Club handicapper Mick Le Sauvage, who had moved into the lead in the middle section of the 5 miles road walk from Lancresse to North Beach, lost his lead in the final few strides to back marker Stuart Le Noury. Raced in windy conditions, with strong headwinds slowing the competitors, fastest walker of the day Stuart Le Noury with a 21 minutes handicap, looked ahead and still with a big gap to close with quarter of a mile to go, ground out the final sprint to take the win in an actual time of 42.42. Emulating his win from the corresponding race held last year Stuart heads the Bob Wright Series by a point from father Kevin. Once race discards are counted then Peter Beckerleg, third across the line brings himself into contention for a series win with one race to go.
