Starting off

It was a warm & windy evening for the 20th of this season's Thursday Salt Ayre Time Trials, sponsored by Clarkson Hirst Solicitors. Although it didn't feel like a quick night, there seemed to be a fair few personal bests recorded, so for some at least it was faster than it felt!

The fastest of the 19 riders over two miles was Jack Tipler in 6:02, closely followed by Dylan Edwards in 6:06 & Ethan Yates in 6:17. Megan Howarth was the fastest girl, in 6:54, from Kirsty Maher in 7:14 & Amelie Earnshaw in 7:37.

25 riders undertook the six mile time trial, with George Mason the fastest in 14:49 from Bobby Horton in 15:27 & Ben Pennance in 15:58. Of the girls, Flo Horton was fastest in 19:34, ten seconds ahead of Nancye Roberts in 19:44, and 3rd place Emilia Wood close behind in 19:49.

The top 4 of the 32 riders tackling ten miles were very close. Lynn Hamel was fastest in 22:50, then joint second were Mark Monkhouse & Ian Sibbert in 22:55, and just three seconds further back was Tom Phillips, in 22:58. 2nd placed woman was Jenny Evans in 27:16, and 3rd Kerry Oldfield in 27:35.

The last riders off were the two-up duo of Karen Gay and Mary Neil, perhaps demonstrating that practice & experience are pretty useful in riding bit-and-bit twelve-and-a-half times around the track, as they went a full minute & 25 seconds faster than last week, recording 30:21.

Twenty weeks in, and people such as Bob & Jan Muir, and Tom & Carmen Jackson are down at Salt Ayre all evening every Thursday; they're there before you arrive & after you've left, getting everything ready & tidying it all away again afterwards. Of course many others help too, but it's people such as Bob, Jan, Tom & Carmen who keep our cycling - & cycling in general - going. So please be sure to let them know you appreciate their efforts.

It was great to see a fair few Cog Setters helping out last night too, & looking like they were enjoying themselves! Thanks to them for mucking in with everybody else.

And finally, thanks to Clarkson Hirst Solicitors, who are supporting this year's time trialling with a generous prize fund.
