After crossing the finishing line in first place, Conservative MP Tim Loughton said, “Clearly the best team won and we are delighted to be victorious for the second year in a row. It was a tough contest, and while the wind direction made it hard to get a good toss on the pancake, once we got in our stride, there was just no stopping us".
