September 2010 Ė Cowgrove 3.8 miles Time Trial

Roy Long sets sub-23 course record as Becka Hughes claims her first TT trophy.

In August a new time trial course record was set by Roy Long. With speed merchants Roy and Andy McDonald both lining up for Septemberís trial, the record looked immediately under threat. Sure enough a new record was set, Roy recorded the first sub-23 minute time. However, there was a mighty tussle between the two big guns, as Roy didnít catch Andy McD (there was a 30 seconds difference in their handicaps) until the final few bumps in the road approaching the finish line. Just to spice things up nicely for next month there was a storming run from David Long and this puts him on course for a head-to-head against Andy McD, as Davidís time was a mere four seconds slower than Andyís.

The handicap time trial rewards the biggest improvers, rather than the fastest runners though. There were outstanding performances from Becka Hughes, Kim Brackley and Kelly Williams. These three took the podium positions. Becka and Kim set off on the same handicap, so had a ding-dong battle from start to finish. They were separated by just four seconds at the end. They had to push to the limit in order to catch Kelly who had set off one minute before them. The pair caught Kelly as the Cuthbury came into site. In another month the improvement that Steve Headley showed would have been good enough to land him the trophy, but he picked the wrong month to come good!

We welcomed two new runners to the time trial, Annette Baxter and Val Clark. They were set off on a estimated handicap. Bob Caines did a great job of piloting round our two newcomers. We look forward to seeing them next month now that we can calculate their handicaps.

Once again the mighty Lynn Hutchings recorded the fastest ladiesí time. Lynnís time of 27:04 set in May this year looks as if it might survive into the new year as the ladiesí course record. 

Our timekeepers did a great job, thank you to Wendy Kennedy and Elaine Long. Full results for the time trial were:
