Finally! We had the perfect time trialling weather for the July edition of our club time trial; dry roads, warm temperatures and still air. Another good turn out resulted, and a thrilling battle for first place between our own Jon Hughes and Jez Ponting from VC St Raphael (only 2 seconds separated them at our June event), resulted in Jez winning by just one second in 23:04!
Fantastic performances and PBs from lots of riders including Chris Jenkinson (VC Meudon) and Matt Hill who broke 25:00 for the first time (both on road bikes), Mark Pritchard who knocked over 1:30 off his previous PB, and Jackie Fieldus who knocked 1:20 off hers.
The women's field was won in impressive style by Angela Carpenter from Petersfield Tri Club in 26:52 on a road bike.
Thanks to all who turned up to race and support, and particularly to the volunteers without whom the series wouldn't happen. This month they were:
Push-offer: Matt Hurst
Marshals: Sheena Milne, Antonio Silano, Lara O'Keeffe, Adrian Waddy, Rob Wheeler
Finish Timekeeper: Brian Waters
Cakes: Lara O'Keeffe, Sara Horner, Jackie Fieldus

Full results are here.
See you on August 13th for our next event.
