What are we going to do on Thursday evenings now then?! This was the last of this year's series of 30 Salt Ayre time trials. We're past the autumnal equinox, the nights are drawing in (& getting colder), and depending on your inclination, it's time to start getting in the miles, to turn to track or X, or hibernate!

Most important, a HUGE thank you to the core team of people who have made 2015 such a success - the overall organiser & time keeper Bob Muir, Jan Muir & Carmen Jackson on the signing-on desks, Tom Jackson on refreshments, & Tim Norton & Brian Kennedy for sorting volunteers & helping to make things run smoothly. And to all of you who have helped in all kinds of ways, big & small, across the season. Thursday nights just wouldn't work without a whole bunch of people mucking in. So thanks to everyone, and let's hope we can sustain the success next year.

And of course, thanks too to all the riders. Another 78 last night, taking the overall figure of time trials at Salt Ayre this season above 2000 - stunning! It wasn't the fastest night, cool & blustery, but it stayed dry & for those not concentrating too hard on the effort there was a fine sunset followed by a lovely moon!

Of 16 riders at 2 miles James McCracken was fastest in 5:39, followed by Dylan Edwards in 5:58. Max Davies was 3rd in 6:10. Amongst the girls, fastest was Ella Cornwall in 7:32, followed by Zoe Tunnadine in 8:13 and Hannah Dykes in 8:38. But really well done to all the youngsters who've given the Salt Ayre 2 mile time trial a go this season, and we look forward to you coming back for more next year.

24 riders took on 6 miles. First off were Flo Horton & Megan Howarth, both 12 years old, riding as a 2-up & finishing in 19:15.

Of the 22 6 mile solo riders Ben Pennance was fastest in an impressive 15:48, more than a minute ahead of 2nd placed James Tunnadine in 16:53 & James McCracken - still fresh after his effort at 2 miles - in 17:06. Fastest girl was Nancye Roberts in 20:01.

At 10 miles two sets of lads rode 2-ups: the pair of William Dykes & John Roberts - both 12 - looked good as they rode to 27:38; and so too did 12 year old Adam Hodgson & 11 year old Isaac Atkinson, who took just 20 seconds more, finishing in 27:58.

Ian Sibbert was fastest of the solo riders in 22:44, followed by Sean Casson in 22:55 & Andrew Barlow in 23:08. The top 3 women were Sandra Ashton (30:10), Dawn McCracken (30:45), & Sue Holden (31:10).

So that's it for this year! But don't forget it's LCC's Open Hill Climb event, comprising 2 climbs up either side of Quernmore Valley, this Sunday (27th Sunday) morning; the more spectators the merrier.
