Club 10 TT – Final Series Results

The rain held off for what turned out to be a bit of a gloomy evening for the final round of the summer TT series.  We had 22 starters as well as Mark and Lisa going 2-up so a good turn out to end things on.  This week saw a number of people complete the 5 rides to qualify for an overall placing, Dave Medhurst turning in a 23:22, a consistent performance with his other 4 times to take the series.  Congratulations to him. Dan Wood was second with 4 very respectable sub 25 times, let down a little by his first run.  Continue reading “Club 10 TT – Final Series Results”

Club 10 TT Round 10

From Mick –

The skies opened on the 14 hardy souls who turned out for last Friday’s TT, the penultimate round of the series.  Despite the difficult and wet conditions, again some good times were ridden, perhaps helped along by the gusting south easterly wind and despite not being able to go full gas on some of the faster parts of the return leg.  With one round to go, we have a new series leader, none other than Pat Jennings who seems to have discovered a love of time trialling over a variety of distances this year.  He holds a 6 second lead over second placed Ben Carroll, both with 5 rides done.  Continue reading “Club 10 TT Round 10”

Club 10 TT Round 9

Wet conditions with a stiff southerly wind made for challenging conditions for the 15 riders.  Times sere not generally as fast as the previous week when conditions were almost ideal but a number of riders have ridden their best times and made substantial improvements over previous similarly windy and wet runs.  As the series is drawing to a close, we now have 6 riders who have completed 5 runs, with John Chichester having done 6 so his slowest time doesn’t figure in the results.  Continue reading “Club 10 TT Round 9”

Club 10 TT Results Round 8

A warm evening with a light breeze made for good conditions and a turnout of 21 starters including a guest rider, Michael Gallagher of the Australian Paralympic team who is in a training camp in Newport.  Some good times ridden, our guest doing a very fast 21:45, which included an overshoot and U turn at the Cowbridge slip road.  There were good sub-25 times from Graeme Boswell, Sion Jones and Dan Wood.  We now have a new series leader, John Chichester with a best average of 27:44 with 5 rides completed but there are a number of others on 4 and 3 rides chasing, including the club’s all-distances TT guru, Toby Hopper.  Continue reading “Club 10 TT Results Round 8”

Club 10 TT – Round 7

Generally good conditions saw a turn out of 13 including Luke Rowe of Sky guest riding and setting what is believed to be a course record time of 20’27”. Otherwise, amongst the mere mortals a number of short through to long 25’s were ridden. Graeme Boswell made a return to the bike after several weeks of pizzas and hot dog diet and set the best time on the night otherwise and a marker to improve from. Louis Adams riding his 4th TT of the series is closing in on the lead but Rob Morgan is still holding on due to his 5 rides completed. Continue reading “Club 10 TT – Round 7”

Ajax Club 10 TT – Round 6

Pleasant sunny weather with a light breeze brought out 23 starters, including a two-up for another enjoyable evening.  Some good times were recorded, Dave Medhurst coming in on a series best so far of 23:23 and a number of others who now have few rides under the belt such as Louis Adams, John Chichester and Rob Morgan put in their fastest times yet.  Rob remains in the lead with 5 rides done and if he keeps improving, some of his earlier times will fall out of the calculations.  There are now a handful of others with 3 and 4 rides done chasing close behind. 
As the Olympic Road Race trip is coming up, we may take a break from the time trials this Friday (27 July) but will confirm on website and Facebook  by Thursday.
