Club TT No. 6

posted 16 Sept 2018, 06:16 by Lara Taylor   [ updated 16 Sept 2018, 06:18 ]
Our final 10-mile TT of the year was run yesterday on the G10/45 from Loxwood Sports but fear not, we still have the hillclimb on Saturday October 13th to look forward to, so put it in your diaries.

We had beautiful conditions yesterday with sunshine and dry roads. Characteristically chilly for the September event which meant, as usual, slightly slower times with only one PB (Tim Powell). First rider back in the road bike category was Jon Hughes in 24:21, followed by Carl Wichman in 26:06. First woman home in the road bike category was Laura Senior in 28:13.

First in the TT category was David Walters who finished in 24:03 followed by Elliot Brown in 26:01. Ali Walters was first woman in the TT category in 28:15.

A big thanks to all the  riders who joined us yesterday and at any of our season's events. I know the early start time isn't appealing, but it ensures quiet empty roads and enables everybody to have plenty of time to get on with their day.

Special thanks to the volunteer crew who this month had to face a bit of abuse from some of the local residents who are sensitised to the proliferation of local cycling events by the inaugural Velo South next Sunday. Thanks for keeping your heads guys!

This month my team was:

Push-offer: Pete Ross
Marshals: Peter Davies, Robin Snook, James Andrews, Chris Carroll, Antonio Silano & Rob Wheeler
Finish Timekeeper: Tim Rogers
Results: Marco Burgin
HQ Teas: Chris Eaton

Full results are here and if you're interested in some wider statistics, the updated Results Summary spreadsheet shows how this year's riders have fared year throughout the season and against their previous year's achievements.

Please come along to the hillclimb in October, and please make a plan to ride as many of the TTs as you can next year. The Club puts these events on for you guys - the riders - and it would be great to get a few more participants (spread the word to the local clubs if you have contacts). Who knows, Skiff Lane might even get resurfaced if we're lucky!
