25 MILE CATTLE CROSSING TT – STIRTON

13TH JUNE 2018

It was a rather windy night for the 25 but 11 intrepid riders set out to try to beat their previous times or to set a standard for future attempts on the course.

Although the course record didn’t fall tonight the time set by Ryan Perry was a splendid 53:52 earning him top spot on the podium.  Close behind to take second spot was Bronte rider Steve Ayres in 55:08 and another Bronte rider, Ben Cook took third place in 1:01:29.

In the Vets category Nina Benson, Ilkley CC,  took the honours having a terrific +6:18 on age standard,  also taking the prize for first (and only) lady.  Second in Vets was Ben Cook with his +5:34 and in third spot Steve Lloyd with a +4:39.

Congratulations to all those riders and it was great to see so many Bronte riders featuring in the placings.

Our President obviously takes his catering duties seriously as he cut his ride short and provided some well-deserved refreshments for the riders who did the longer course!

Thanks to John, our intrepid time keeper and perhaps to Eamonn too who may have been spotted out on the course to get some photos.

It’s Kildwick next week – 7.30 start at the usual spot.
