September Club TT Report

Today was our final 10 mile TT of the season (don't fret - we still have the club hillclimb on 17 October!) It was a beautiful, still, dry morning, perfect for time trialling, and we had our biggest ever entry with 33 riders.

Fantastic to see so many under-18s riding, as well as a good bunch of female riders. And loads of PBs too, despite September not traditionally being so forthcoming. Big thanks to all of you who've come out to support these events - it makes everything worthwhile to see so many of you smashing it round the lumpy bumpy G10/45.

In the TT category, Jon Hughes finished first in 23:22, proving that he's in fine form this year, as if there was any doubt. Not far behind was Matt Hill in 23:30, winning the vets category by a country mile. 3rd TT rider was Chris Carroll in 24:57.

On the road bikes, Jez Meredith was first rider home in 24:01, with Ross Ovens in second place with 24:56, beating his previous best by 1:35. Callum Davies-Russell was 3rd in 25:40.

First female rider was Kirsty Woodcock (unaffiliated) in 29:55, riding her first ever TT. In very close 2nd (1st female vet) was Jackie Johnson in 29:59 with a PB of 31 seconds.

First junior rider (16-18) was Charlie Payne (unaffiliated) in an excellent 26:30, with Ethan Gubby first juvenile rider (under 16), hot on his heels in 26:34 (a PB of 38 seconds). Tallulah Sullivan (Lee Valley) was 2nd juvenile home, first female juvenile, and 3rd female overall in 31:12.

Excellent work all! 

And many thanks to my amazing volunteer team once again, who run the show and this month were:

And to Adrian at Loxwood Sport who luckily took a passing comment about the 12 September being our next TT seriously, and was there to open up at 07:00 this morning, despite my last-minute panic!
