Lockdown leads to some different but enjoyable routes

A tougher night tonight with an unhelpful wind kept the PB count low. Several riders cruised over the line clearly having decided a finishing effort was in vain.
Only 3 riders recorded a new high water mark, along with 2 who rode their second event faster than their first.
Russ Hughes recorded a 3rd consecutive PB and Chris Bartram and Francis Smith completed the set. Gary Burnie and Paul Hague both found the benefit of a second run
It must have been hard as Mark Whalley failed to PB!
Ken Thursby took the win and his first ever on a club event (he chose well as it was the Championship night so he`ll get a cup to go with his success come November). This was only the second time he`s been under 23 minutes.
Tania takes the ladies 10 mile championship by 11 seconds from Caroline and Matthew Wells takes the Junior title with a very measured effort.
Miriam Jessett and Mike James took the unorthodox route to PBs by riding as a 2 up - I cant allow that to stand for either of them individually but its AFAIK the record (and first ever) TTT result for a club night.
Alex Buckthorp and Martin Heardman rode their first club events. Welcome.
Comendations go to Raymond Bell who hasnt missed a single 10 since the start of 2016 and Ronnie Thompson who has ridden every 10 since May 2014.
