ATHLETICS: Massey return to Holland.
MASSEY FERGUSSON make their annual trip to Holland this weekend to compete in the Batavierenrace, the world's biggest relay which has attracted close to 260 teams of 25 runners.
The race is in its 30th year and team manager Barry Holmes has competed every year since 1988. When he moved to the Midlands two years later, it wasn't long before he got his new clubmates at Massey Ferguson interested in the event in which they have enjoyed considerable success.
Eileen McKenzie holds the fastest time for the 24th leg and in 1999 Massey finished third overall and top foreign team, taking third place in that category the following year.
"I am confident we will be in there again, keeping going the tradition of featuring in the elite group," said Holmes.
