Club TT Event Results held Thursday 13th August and presentation of prize money

Wow what an evening of memorable racing last night. The course record was smashed by 13 secs to 19:49 secs by the remarkable Jonathan Shubert, followed by a PB for Ross Holland in 20:17 secs and a further PB from our Harry Walton in 20:40 secs. Lindsey Lyes took 1st place in the women’s section in a very good time of 23:48 secs. I am pleased to also confirm that our Ellie Mackman will hold the course record this season in a time of 23:43 secs from her 6th August event attendance.

We had 37 riders sign on for this event and should you wish to view the results, Division results, Standards and Scratch results, then please go to our TT pages.

I wish to thank our Time Keepers Mike Wake and Bill Olver along with our Marshal for the evening Gary Potts, as without their help and support, we could not run this event.

As advised earlier this week, as we could not have our usual prize giving ceremony at the end of the season, I had to speculate on the top 3 within each Division.  I was close, but due to one person getting a puncture and another turning up unexpectantly, there are some mimor changes so the final results are listed below:

Bonus Prize Money

Due to the improved attendance of women participation in this short series of TT events, there have been two sub 24 minute riders who the club wish to recognize and these are:

  • Lindsey Lyes to receive £10
  • Ellie Mackman to receive £10

Congratulations everyone, it has been an excellent short series, with course records, PB’s and many personal achievements recognised. It has been great to see a lot more support of our TT events by women, and this is also now recognised by the club recording any course record times now going forward.

I wish to thank everyone involved for their support, enthusiasm to still race within the Covid-19 safe guidance. This guidance  will still now need to be followed where practical, for our two forthcoming two hill climb events on the 20th and 27th August. Details will be added to the TT pages shortly and I hope to receive details from Velo Vitesse regarding their two hosted events pencilled in for the 18th and 25th August.
