Club Time Trial GS/189 - Tuesday 9th August

This week saw the final club Tuesday Evening Time Trial of the season (but still the 25 Champs, Inter Club and Hill Climb to be contested). Raced on the hilly 14 mile Faygate course, it was the second and concluding leg of the Ian Hiscock Handicap Trophy. Great to see the trophy pass onto Robbie Calder who has been a supporter and rider of the club events for many years. He beat Alan Dolan into second and the ever improving Dale Baldwin into third.

Thirteen riders took to the start line with some of the new faces for this season recording faster times then the previous running of this course. Oscar Winter took over a minute off his time, along with improvement by Lloyd Griffin. Tony Banbury rode well and Matt Twelvetrees just sneaked under 38 minutes.

I kept my late season form with a third consecutive win in a time of 36:18, followed by Dale Baldwin and Tim Peters. Claire Wallace took another 10 points for Ladies points competition.

Thanks to the helpers on the night (Colin Ferry, Malcolm Curtis, Peter Delve, Stewart Forbes and Dave Manders) but also to those who have helped throughout the season, without this we could not run the events.
