Another doubtful starter
Third placed Michael George was suffering from an infected toe during the days leading up to the Parish Walk and he required antibiotics to get him to the start line. "My bad toe was fine during the race" he said afterwards "It was my good one that was bad" as he tried to explain the infamous black toenails. It would be more unusual report that Michael hadn't been sick than had been but this time his sickness may have been caused by the antibiotics. He was rather surprised when during his Manx Radio interview he referred to his need to "sit down" in a field to explain his stomach problems, the comments were left unedited.
