Results

This evening saw a continuation of the recent heatwave, and the riders found the conditions quite warm, to say the least. This, combined with very gentle winds promised good racing conditions (provided the riders didn't overheat!).

And so it proved - at least two riders recorded their best times on this course. Steph improved by around 30 seconds and Martyn (following a bikefit apparently, which has benefited recent outings) by over a minute. So well done both.

Robert took a narrow victory with 22:43 over  Adrian's 22:52, and also took the first place on veterans standard (unsurprisingly, since he was the oldest rider this evening!). But actually, it was a good evening for all riders, which some of us celebrated by retiring to the 3 Locks pub a couple of miles down the road, where we enjoyed the sunset.

It was also good to see Dick out for the first club event in ages since his hip operation - he was doing the sign placement along with Chris. Many thanks also to Katja for timekeeping.
