Chris Brocksopp got damage to his front wheel on the first corner but still managed to run and do some crucial blocking.
Chris Cowley did very well blocking and getting the job done well every time. FWJ took the flag followed closely by the rest of team GB. The boys hard work gave us enough points to give to give us a decent start.
