2015 has now had more week's containing a Salt Ayre time trial on a Thursday evening than not! And there are still three more weeks to go!

With the schools returning, the 27th of this season's 30 week series saw a resumption in pre-school holiday participation levels. LCC's President & Racing Secretary, and the man without whom this event which has become such a foundation of the club cycling calendar would not happen, Bob Muir says 2015 is already the most successful season of time trialing at Salt Ayre. In 2012 we had 975 individual rides recorded; in 2013 this increased to 1118 and increased again in 2014 to 1263.

With 74 rides tonight (30 at 10 miles, 24 at 6 miles, & 20 at 2 miles) there have already been 1888 individual rides. So with another three weeks to go we may exceed 2000 rides for the season. That's some achievement (for everyone concerned)!

Clearly not everyone enjoyed too much ice-cream over summer, & there were some impressive times - including quite a few PBs - on one of the best evenings of the year so far - warm, dry & almost still.

At two miles three riders cracked the magic six minute, 20 mph barrier - fastest was Harry Shaw in 5:39, followed by Jack Tipler & Dylan Edwards in 5:58 & 5:59 respectively. Congratulations lads! The fastest girl was Kirsty Maher in 6:51.

There were some super-quick times at six miles too, with Kyle Lewis fastest in 14:13, followed exactly half-a-minute later by Isaac Weber (14:43). In third was the much younger Adam Hodgson in 16:45. Four more riders cracked the 20 mph, 18 minute barrier - James McCracken (16:49), Harry Coulthwaite (17:21), Karen Gay (17:32), & Chris Barlow (17:40). The fastest of the younger female riders was Flo Horton in 18:41 (& thanks to her for the artistic 'water bottles on the ground' photo!).

At ten miles Andrew Horn again showed himself to be probably the strongest rider around Salt Ayre's loop this year - finishing in an excellent 21:37. He was followed by Ian Sibbert & Adrian Dalgleish in 22:16 & 22:24 respectively. Three other riders cracked the magic 25 mph, 24 minute barrier - Andy Barlow (23:10), Tom Oldham (23:31), & John Hatton (23:59). A little further back, 14 year old Sam Pugh continues to look stronger & faster, recording an excellent 24:19. Jenny Evans was the fastest woman, in 25:35, followed by Kerry Oldfield in 26:44.

As ever, big thanks to Clarkson Hirst Solicitors for their support of the series, & to all the many people who helped out in ways big & small. Club cycling depends on a wide range of people making all kinds of contributions, and whatever you offer will be gratefully received.
