Club 10 TT #5

posted 17 Aug 2019, 10:47 by Lara Taylor   [ updated 17 Aug 2019, 10:47 ]
Another fantastic TT this morning, with 27 riders on the start line despite the rain over the last few days. Because of the weather, most decided to ride road bikes so there were 22 in the road bike category versus 5 in the TT category.

Jon Hughes was first back on a TT bike with an excellent 23:12, followed by Rob Lucas in 27:08. Jon was also first VET on standard in the TT category, followed by Horsham CC's Brian Jones. 

In the road category it was Will Ranoe in top spot with 24:10 although with an unofficial time due to a missed start. Callum Davies-Russell was second in 24:44, closely followed by Matt Hill in 24:48. Laura Senior was first lady home with 27:44, followed by newbie Becky Starbuck in 29:56. First VET on standard in the road category was Matt with a plus time of 2:45, followed by Mark Pritchard with a plus time of 1:10.

Fantastic to see so much variety at this event: we had a two-up team, 2 junior riders, 3 women and 6 first-timers (Robbie, Paul, Steve Street, Steve Wild, Becky and Poppy), as well as 9 PBs. Well done all!

Thanks as ever to our team of volunteers without whom the event just couldn't run. This month the terrific team were:

Push-offer, teas & HQ clean-up: Matt Hurst
Marshals: Andrew Hall, Nick Davison, Sheena Rogers, Ali Siddall, Elliot Brown
Finish timekeeper: Brian Waters
Results: Marco Burgin

Full results are here

Our last 10-miler of the season runs on September 14th. After which it'll be the hill climb on Staple Lane on 12th October. Please put these dates in your diaries.

Thanks to everybody for supporting this event! It is much appreciated.
