Cracoe Time Trial Results for May 11th 2016

It was good to be back from OZ and back at  the time trials again;  I’m sorry I’ve missed those at the beginning of the season – well, perhaps not the one where you had hail and sleet to contend with!

So,  tonight: thanks to all the marshals out on the course and to time keepers and pusher off.  Thank you to all riders for coming out and giving it your all on a windy night in less than perfect conditions.  At least the rain held off until we’d all finished.  Thanks to all those who supported Sarah in Sunnyside Cafe……she stays open especially for us when she would normally finish her working day at 4pm…so, on a Wednesday she has a 14 hour day – let’s help to make it worth her while to do so.

What can I say about tonight’s TT!  It was a  course record  from Ryan Perry, the National 25-mile Champion, who took 19” off his time of last week.  Well done, a deserved victory this evening.  In second place was Steve Lampier from JLT Condor, another rider with an outstanding palmares, in a time of 21:49.  Steve Ayres, 38” down on his time last week, still rode a great TT to finish ‘on the podium’ in a commendable third place.

Top position on age standard this evening went to Dave Metcalfe with a +2:49. Second place to Steve Colloby – +2:41 and third place to Paul Braithwaite  – +2:12.

Special mention tonight goes to Alex Ridehalgh who, at 16 was our youngest rider but who rode an excellent time of 24:17 on a tough course.

Here are tonight’s results: Any errors or omissions please let me know.
