July 2009 – Cowgrove 4 mile Time Trial

The mercury was rising for this month’s time trial. I suspect this was the warmest weather we have ever had for any time trial since they were introduced a few years ago. Inevitably times did suffer. Indeed anyone who recorded a time within a minute of last month’s time trial could consider their run a great success.

Having said that we did have four improvers. Well done to Tim Box, Celia Ireland, Georgie Hougham and Paul Hougham. Tim and Celia are worthy of special mention as their time gains were in the order of three minutes, extraordinary performances in the conditions. Tim was first over the line and so went home with the trophy, but I doubt that anyone has ever improved as much as Celia did (bearing in mind the conditions) without picking up the silverware.

We had two time trial debuts, well done to Gerry Hutchings and John Hutchings, solid performances, but for sure it will be easier next month. Also worthy of special mention were our ‘greyhounds’ – Steve Guy and Andy Porter. They both started with a whopping 18 minute handicap and finished well up the field.

Our team of timekeepers/recorders on the night were Barbara Frampton and Ian & Wendy Kennedy.

Full results for the time trial were:
