ONE... LAST... PUSH...

Classic Racer - - PADDOCK GOSSIP - Words and pic­tures by: Mark Mccloskey

The re­cent Phillip Is­land In­ter­na­tional Clas­sic saw an im­pres­sive and en­thu­si­as­tic con­tin­gent of Ir­ish rid­ers make the long jour­ney down and back. Among them was Sean Henry, no stranger to these pages over the years, who worked hard all week­end try­ing to im­prove his lap times. Dis­sat­is­fied with his re­sults he de­cided to give it his all for the last race of the week­end on Sun­day af­ter­noon. How­ever, on the last lap, of the last race, while brak­ing hard for Siberia, he over­did it just a frac­tion and bounced and rolled his way into the kitty lit­ter. Thank­fully, other than scuffed leathers and a slightly dented pride, Sean was un­hurt and is plan­ning his re­turn visit in 2018.
