Course: 1U/10B (“Road Works 10”)
Helped by decent conditions and several on their Easter holidays a remarkably good size field of twenty two riders took part. Even more remarkably (given that there were some making their TT or course debut) no one got lost. James McPherson took the honours for fastest ride of the evening, eclipsed only by Ella Ruggles who set a new baseline Club record for her age and gender. It is to be confirmed whether this counts as a “junior”, “juvenile” or “school persons” record when our Records Officer has consulted the archives to determine how these are classified (they haven’t been used for very many years).
Thanks as ever to our Event Crew – especially to Simon Doyle from Team Sales Engine who made the mistake of coming to say hello to the Event Sec. and was immediately drafted in as Prop. Julian Pegg began his apprenticeship as Time Keeper, being shown by Frank Turner and Leanne Cutler which buttons to click on the watch and how to record the results.

Next week’s event is at the same time on the same course. A call for riders and crew will be made via the Club Facebook group a few days ahead.
Please call out your number as you approach the finish line. This makes it much easier for the Time Keepers to record your result.
In the interests of your safety and that of other riders, you MUST NOT make a U-turn within sight of the Time Keepers after crossing the finish line. Another rider might be right behind you travelling at speed. The Event Crew reserves the right to disqualify any rider seen making such a manoeuvre.
