A quiet end to the club TT season with no significant changes to the overall results and only 2 PBs owing to the Westerly breeze which kept riders under pressure on the mid section of the race. The PBs were creditied to riders who havent ridden for some years on our course so welcome back to Mark Strang our winner, congratulations, and Wayne Coates who knocked nealy 2 minutes off his 2014 time, both clearly enjoying good form after the intervening years.
New riders to this event on the night were Peter Stokoe and Dan Wilson, welcome, and making a return after a 6 year gap, Kyle Watts, who has some work to do to catch up with his junior self of 2012!
In the overall we have a good mixture of age groups in the Short BAR with all ages represented in the top 3 of Tom Hutchinson, Ken Thursby and Matthew Wells. Congratulations to all three.
Matthew Wells also has the remarkable distinction of being on the podium of 3 Championships at the same time, having won the Juvenile and Junior titles too.
The closely contested top spot in the Vets went to Ken, the wind holding off a last minute push from Dave Robinson, with Russ taking the third podium spot.
Ladies top spot in the Short Bar goes to Caroline Rochester, with Lesley Bennett in second place and winner of the ladies Vets, Congratulations to both.
Thanks to all who supported the events this year - I dont want to single anyone out as so many have helped me and I think you know its much appreciated, however Sharon Dyson has been tireless in her help and enthusiasm and isnt even a member of our club (although I`m sure she deserves honoury second claim!)
I hope to see many of you at the Hill Climb on the 22nd September and the Champions Night in November.
