    Imagine turning up for a league meeting and finding that the opposition were tracking Ivan Mauger at reserve, and he would be off a 10 yard start! Hard to believe, but it happened to Bees once - 18 Jul 1963, at Oxford. Result was a comfortable 44-34 win for Oxford, with Mauger top scoring with a 12 point maximum, and no.1 Ronnie Genz returning an 11 point tally. Top Bee was Ken McKinlay with 12 from five rides, beaten twice by Mauger. Mauger was beaten in the 2nd half by Nigel Boocock, who went on to win the Rider of the Night final.
