After a sunny week at Compos training camp, the Time Trial season got underway with the Prologue between Rudston and Burton Flemming. Mark took the honours by the slimmest of margins over Miles and only thirty seconds separated the first 6 riders. Dawn finished with a very good time of 6mins 30secs in her first taste of the Race of Truth. RESULT
The Hilly Ten was the course for Tuesdays first TT proper with a 11 riders facing the tough course and the cold and windy conditions. The usual suspects pinned the numbers on with some notable absentees namely Andy Askwith and Ben Roberts. Its always good to see new riders pitching up and pitting themselves against the clock and young Kevin Helliwell turned in a very respectable time of
32.08 on his road bike. The non-aero position on the back half of the course into a very strong headwind did him no favours but he seemed to enjoy it. Matt Pilling perhaps spurred on by Kevins participation has splashed out on some Areobars and will be pinning a number on for the Haisthorpe 10.
Mark continued with his 100% points total with a 12second victory over the rest of the field, but a strong performance by Stu pushed Martin into 4th place. Its a long season but it looks as if the race for Div1 could be tough.
It was a tight race for the Div2 riders with Adam just pipping Brian by a second to take top points but Seb was marshalling so has yet to start his campaign.
Its a great reflection on the club to have two strong ladies fighting it with the men and more than holding their own, Trish turned in a PB reflecting on a successful training camp and Dawn putting a good time on the board of under 30mins which is very good for a first look at a difficult course.
See you all at Haisthorpe on Tuesday night. Please check the results page for your turn at marshalling.
