There was a good turnout at Loxwood Sports Club HQ this morning in mild, calm conditions for the 2nd VCGH club TT of the year. 18 VCGH riders - including our biggest female turnout so far of 3 riders - plus a couple more from local clubs brought the total to 20 riders.
The TT was won in an impressive 22:57 by Farnham Road Club's Sam Orbell, with our own Jon Hughes close behind with 23:07 and Rupert Dickinson at 24:09. For Sam and Jon, this was their first experience of the G10/45!
Our 3 ladies did a fantastic job at their first official time trial, shaving off between 30 seconds and 2 and a half minutes from their training session around the course a couple of weeks ago. First lady home was Ali Walters in a fantastic 33:44.
Great effort to everyone and thanks as always to the very dedicated team of volunteers who sacrifice their lie-ins to keep the course safe for the riders:
Pusher-offer: Matt Hurst
Marshals: Nathan Hoy, Chris Eaton, Pete Phipps, Peter Davies, Rob Wheeler
Finish timekeeper: Brian Waters
HQ coffee & cakes: Linda Hoy, Sara Horner
Please put 13th June in your diaries.

NB: The only downside was that one of our riders' cars appears to have been keyed while in the carpark at the HQ so please be vigilant with your belongings.
