Cracoe 10 mile TT. August 9th 2017 – results

Tonight was the penultimate time trial of our season and it was a lovely evening though the wind didn’t favour the riders on their return leg.  So, it was rather an uphill battle coming home and even on the long, flat straight the wind caused riders to wonder what was happening to their speed!

At the end of the night it was a Bronte Wheelers 1-2-3 – a great result for the club and for the riders involved.  Steve Ayers took top position almost 3 minutes ahead of second placed Steve Lloyd; Ben Cook was a very close third just 13” behind Steve L.

In the Vets category Steve Lloyd was placed first with a +2:11 on standard and Nina Benson – our sole female rider tonight – was a close second with a +2:07.  Third place Vet was Russell Marsden with a +1:50 on standard. Well done to those Vets.

The night wouldn’t be the same without the help of the marshals at the various points on the course – thank you to them and to Tony for pushing off.  Thanks to John for refreshments and a few from Yours Truly (I wish they’d all been eaten because I’m at home scoffing them now  – I’ll be like Billy Bunter!!)

Next week is our final time trial of the season and is, once again, on the Cracoe course starting at 7pm.  ROAD BIKES ONLY please!

Please be prepared to linger a little longer after the trial has finished as we’ll have a bit of a wind-down for the season with some nibbles and drinks and a few prizes for the various categories I have randomly picked this year….namely:

Best rider over minimum of 4 of the 10 milers

Best rider who completed all 3 longer course TT’s (12.5, 23 and 25)

Best over the 2 ‘road bike only’ trials

Please note that 2nd and 3rd places in the above categories will also receive a prize.

For everyone else who has taken part I hope you enjoy the drinks and nibbles and a few raffle prizes….we’ll hope for good weather!
