232 John Pearce Christchurch 3 13 00
Story: John Pearce was following a rider who took a wrong turn and ended up going a long way the wrong way. When he realised he rode back to where he went wrong and continued on the correct course. However, by this stage the tail-end-charlie had passed so the marshal was reluctant to let him continue on the 55km course. John then rode back to where the 55km and 35km courses join again and finished the ride following the 55km route.
Tim Stanton was tail-end-charlie on the 55km course
Richard Craig was the 35km course sweep

* This was what their actual ride time and place would have been after taking into account their later start
