Club 10 TT #2

A bit of a disappointing turnout this morning for the second in our summer Club 10 series, with only 14 riders. Clashes with other events (Bentley open 10 TT in the afternoon, and the Little Lumpy tomorrow) probably played a part, but it's a shame not to see more VCGHers having a go at this event (which is quite good fun, if you ignore the pain!) You definitely don't have to be a hardened time trialist to participate.

Thanks to the hardcore 14 though, and well done to Jon Hughes for knocking half a minute off last month's time for first TT bike in 23:17. This week, however, he was beaten on VET standard time by Matt Hill who was a whole 3 minutes 27 seconds faster than his VTTA VET standard time, with an overall time of 24:01.

Meanwhile, in the road category, it was Chris Carroll who stormed to victory in 24:58, with Rob Julian in second place with a PB of 26:27. PB also for 1st ladies road bike Debbie Morgan with 28:15.

The team of volunteers was almost bigger than the team of riders this month! And I hugely appreciate every effort. Thanks  to:

Push-offer: Matt Hurst
Start timekeeper: Ali Walters
Marshals: Elliot Brown, Richard Moore, Nick Davison, Frank Eisenhower, Ali Siddall, Tim Powell and Rob Wheeler
Finish timekeeper: David Walters
Results: Marco Burgin
HQ Teas: Ali Siddall & Frank Eisenhower

And thanks as always to Adrian Morris and the team at Loxwood Sports.

Our next event is on Saturday 15th June. Please spread the word and come along if you can. It's just a blast around an easy circuit on a Saturday morning, followed by a bit of a social over tea and cake. There's really no pressure to be in the thick of the competition. It would be great to see a few more of you there.
