Back to the Astwood sporting course this evening. See the course description and risk assessment. The event starts at 7.00pm, and entries are £2.50 (members) and £3.00 (non-members).

This is our final evening event, the remaining events are to be held in morning weekend slots. If you're riding out to the event, it would be prudent to bring lights.

Results

I think we'd all become used to warm weather of August, so the quite chilly condition came as a bit of a shock! A field of 22 lined up to race this event, and not even a car parked on top of the start line dented our enthusiasm. More awkward was the tractorial activity - several fields were being harvested, and at one point, riders were starting only to disappear into a cloud of dust thrown up by combine harvesters!

The event was won by Rob Saunders, with Mark Ellis hot on his heels.  We had a first time rider - Stephen - who a good ride on a road bike to take 16th place on 26:00 in his first ever time trial. And finally - commiserations to Steve Torley who punctured and couldn't finish. Other notable rides were Sam Carrington (his previous best time was 25.44, now 24.53 and a Junior course record), and Luke Daniells, who improved from a previous best time of 28.30 to 27.47. And Graham Line and Alan Crane were pretty close to their best times.

A reminder - our next League event is on Saturday 30th August up on the Stony course.
