A small but enthusiastic SROC contingent endured 30 hours of constant rain in the middle of the Bank Holiday Weekend and came away smiling from Shropshire.  There were three very different Regional events, all counting for the overall scores.  An O-lympic biathlon comprising a three-legged score sprint and a run-in competition also attracted a surprising number.  Full results.
