Our Club Time Trial Season continued last night with a fabulous turnout of 28 riders, representing 7 different local Cycling Clubs. 🥰
Week 4 of the series saw 17 EGCC riders compete alongside riders from Oxted, Southborough, Addiscombe. We also welcomed Lewis Burgess (EGCC) to his very first Time Trial and Martin Wiles (EGCC) to his first Time Trial in 40 years!! 🙌
The men’s event was won by Marek Siwicki of Addiscombe, with a time of 22:53, closely followed by Mark Bashford (EGCC) just 10 seconds behind.
6 ladies took part for the women’s competition with Francine Davis (EGCC) putting in another impressive performance this season, stopping the clock at 27:43. Cass Volmer took second place, improving her course time by 29 seconds on week 3. 👏
As always we’d like to say a massive thank you to all the Time Keepers and Marshals for making these events possible, especially Russ, for spending his birthday evening with a stopwatch!
Thanks also to all riders for keeping the start /finish line clearer this week. (Number return and Times are now ONLY in the carpark)
Reports from the marshals on course were again largely very positive regarding cornering legally and following the rules of the road. Safety is absolutely essential at these events, so please do keep up the safe riding to avoid disqualification, as we are dedicated to stricter enforcement of this going forward.
