Salt Ayre Time Trials, week 1 - 5th March 2015 Salt Ayre Time Trials, week 1 - 5th March 2015

Last night, Thursday 5th March, saw the first of this year's Salt Ayre time trials. The new flood-lights around the track mean it's now possible to race in the dark, extending the racing season. Aided by a hardy group of volunteers, 47 riders braved a cold but dry evening to race at 2, 6 and 10 miles. To see the full results, please click 'Read more' below.

Of the 7 riders at 2 miles, fastest boy was James McCracken in 5 mins 49 secs, and fastest girl was Emilia Wood in 7 mins and 31 secs. Of the 11 riders at 6 miles, fastest boy was Bobby Horton in 17 mins and 32 secs, and fastest girl was Sasha Oldham in 19 mins and 8 secs. Of the 29 riders at 10 miles, Sam Monkhouse was fastest by just 3 seconds from Andrew Horn, in a very impressive time (it's early March, for goodness sake!) of 22 mins and 43 seconds. In what looks set to be a season-long rivalry, Andy Barlow just beat Ben Barlow by 3 seconds, father & son finishing in 7th and 8th place, in 24:40 and 24:43 respectively. Alison Oldham was fastest of the 6 women, in 29 mins and 26 secs. Jim Lawley on a trike finished in 37 mins and 39 secs.
