A mechanical right at the start when one of the Royal Sands contingent managed to break his derailleur and withdrew, later to appear at Caffles in time for a birthday celebratory cup of tea. This sparked an age related topic and it was worked out on a calculator (last time was by hand and the result was 128yrs) that the average age of the riders today was 74.88 recurring.
