The 100% record of tricycles starting and finishing in 24 hour time trials this year was sealed when Jim Hopper (Derby Mercury) and Dave Stokes (Musselburgh RC) completed the Mersey RC 24 in benign, if eventually rather hot, conditions. Stokes twiddled his accustomed tiny gears for a provisional total of 301.57 miles, while Hopper, unexpectedly stuck in one chainwheel for the duration, covered 355.54 mls.
