Nine brave souls arrived ready for another go in the saddle along with a strong headwind to either help or hinder them along the way. After some warm up laps, the group started with an ITT.
The wind didn’t help the riders at the end as they were finishing in a strong head wind. The group realised they would need to keep their heads down to beat the wind. Tahlia Harper, Eliot Scott-Hamilton, Thomas Singleton & Bernard May all made new PB’s with Thomas Page, Bella Page, Joe Nano, Richard May & Aalya Harper finishing between 3 – 13 seconds off their PB’s.Under the guidance of Andrew Swann, John Scott-Hamilton & Michael Singleton the group headed down to the start line for the group sprints. This also gave them the advantage of having the wind behind them all the way. The group of Tommy Page, Aalya Harper & Tahlia Harper started first, with Aalya having a shorter run to the line, ended in Tommy finishing first and Aalya & Tahlia close behind.
The second & final round of the sprints saw Tommy first again with Tahlia & Aalya behind. The next group included Eliot Scott-Hamilton & Bella Page with Eliot finishing just in front of Bella both times. The last group to go included Bernard May, Thomas Singleton & Joe Nano. This group were close together over the line in both rounds with Bernie coming in first, Thomas in second with Joe in third. The final round was decided with Bernie starting behind Thomas & Joe but ended in the same result.
The final event for the afternoon was the 3 lap handicap with the first 2 riders off go, everyone else going at 30 sec intervals, with the older riders going at 15 sec intervals. Tommy Page & Tahlia Harper started the group, followed by Eliot Scott-Hamilton, Bella Page, Joe Nano; then at 15 sec intervals were Richard May, Thomas Singleton & Bernie May. The place getters for this race were: Thomas Singleton (first), Richard May (second) & Joe Nano (third). Aalya Harper were for a roll around the lap with the assistance of Trudy Page.
Well done everyone! Thanks for Ben Page for the time keeping and Johnny, Swanny & Michael for helping and rolling with the group. See you next week at the start time of 2:30pm.
