A lovely evening and a big field for week 7 of this season's Salt Ayre time trials. 12 riders at 2 miles, 24 at 6 miles, & 45 rides at 10 miles - 81 rides all up, which could be a record!

A lot of decent rides at 2 miles, with Dylan Edwards just pipping Max Davies & Luke Oakes into 2nd and 3rd places (with times of 6:20, 6:28 & 6:39 respectively). Fastest girl was Nancye Robers in 6:56.

Some good times posted at 6 miles too, with Tyrone Lewis fastest in 15:50, followed in 2nd place by fastest girl Evie Barrow, in 16:32. All up, there were nine +20 mph rides at this middle distance.

At 10 miles a lot of riders are getting faster as the season progresses. Quickest this week, and the only rider under 22 minutes, was Andrew Horn in 21:57, followed by George Wharton in 22:19 & Fabian Brennan in 22:33. Amongst the women, Kerry Oldfield edged out Alison Oldham by two seconds, finishing in 27:26.

Just to note that, whilst with so many riders on the track it's sometimes difficult to avoid, drafting other riders is technically against the rules and certainly something that's not to be encouraged; time trialling is a race against yourself, so please get your own time, not someone else's! Also, please keep to the left & overtake on the right, & when overtaking please leave space (less experienced riders are spooked by faster riders coming close to them). And finally, please don't forget to volunteer - these events can't happen if people don't lend a hand. Big thanks to all those who helped last night; once again, it was a lovely atmosphere track-side.

Thanks, and see you next week.
