Cracoe 10 mile TT

9 May 2018

Credits for the above photo should go to Joe Greaves – it was too good to leave out of the results!

It was a cold and wet night with ‘not too much wind’ which probably made it a little warmer than previous weeks.  How sad that after the terrific temperatures over the 4 days of the Tour de Yorkshire the Wednesday brought a change! Here in OZ we managed to view the highlights of the 4 days on You Tube – what a fantastic event it was and I hope those of you who wanted to see it were able to get to the various viewing spots. We wish we’d been there.

I understand that 12 riders started for this edition of the Cracoe 10  – though there appeared to be some reluctance from the flapjack/ tea provider at the line up…..;-)

A well deserved win to Steve Ayres of Bronte Wheelers in a time of 21:23 –  18” down on his best time for this course, but still flying all the same!  Second tonight was Sam Richardson in a time of 24:40, and in third place, proving that being a Vet is no barrier, was Darren Caines just 3 seconds down on Sam.  Well done to those place getters.

In the Vets category Darren took the honours with a +2:11 on standard and in second place another Bronte rider, Steve Lloyd with a +1:01…Steve appears to be coming back to the form he had last year.  Third Vet was Dave Ferguson posting a -0:28 on standard .

Many thanks to John Wray for timekeeping;  David Green pushing off; Norman Oates at the Duckpond; Ben Cook, Duckpond; Terry Pickles at the roundabout.

Thanks too to Ben Cook for cakes and to John Driver for flapjacks and tea.

7.30 pm next week at the same venue.
