TRC Evening “10”, 20yh June 2018

It was the warmest Wednesday evening of the season so far this year with temperatures around 20 degrees and a brisk wind from the south west. A total of 42 riders took part, consisting of 9 juniors, 31 solo senior riders and a tandem pair.

Toby Perry was best of the juniors with an excellent time of 21.46, which would have been good enough for third place in the senior event. Once again Catherine Morrell was quickest girl with yet another age record time of 25.50.

Second claim member, Dan Martin of University of Bath CC, was fastest senior with another time close to the 19 minute mark. This week, Dan’s time was 20.14. Nic Fennell was in second place and fastest TRC rider with 20.38, while Nicola Goodban was top woman with 25.30. There was a PB for Faye Faiers (26.24), and a PB for Nick Austin since his comeback (25.55).

The tandem pairing of Sue Shields and Andy McCall improved by almost a minute on last week’s time to record 26.23.

Times for all riders can be found in the PDF files below.

Thanks as always go to the helpers; this week they were Ray Darrall, Michael Friend, Andrew Morrell, Martin Hendy, Brian Hood, Terry Fearn and Dave Mastin.

VTTA Kent 25 Mile Time Trial, 17th June 2018

This week’s local time trial was the Kent Vets 25 on the Chilham course, organised by Bob Giles. It was cool and grey with a south westerly wind, and there was some light rain for the later starters. It was a hard ride to the turn into the wind, but the wind didn’t seem to offer much help on the return leg.

There was a good number of first and second claim members riding, and between them, they took all three podium places. First was Chris Fennell of the Independent Pedaler with 50.35, in spite of breaking both tri bar pads and buckling his rear wheel at the 18 mile mark! As illustrated by Chris’s problems, the road surface in many places is very poor. Nic Fennell was second with 51.59, just three seconds ahead of Dan Martin (University of Bath CC), who recorded 52.02.

Times of all club riders in starting order:-
Matt Seward: 1.01.08,
Nick Scott: 57.09,
Simon Charles: 1.12.14,
Mark Palmer: 1.01.09,
Paul Kelk: 1.07.05,
Mike Perry: 1.20.38,
Dave Mastin, 1.10.52,
Adrian Hawkins: 56.42,
Chris Bax (2nd claim): 1.03.02,
Nic Fennell: 51.59,
Dan Martin (2nd claim): 52.02,
Paul Griffiths: 1.11.57,
Martin Russell: 1.03.24,
Andy Burrows: 1.16.57,
Chris Fennell (2nd claim): 50.35.

TRC Evening “10”, 13th June 2018

This week, for a change, the weather at Betteshanger was warmer, with a south westerly wind replacing the north easterly which had been almost ever-present this year. Times were generally a bit better for most riders. There was a total of 46 riders taking part, comprising 10 juniors, 34 solo senior riders, and a tandem pair.

Our quickest junior rider was also our quickest girl, with Catherine Morrell coming in with 25.56 for yet another age record. In second place was the first of the boys, which was Flynn Robinson having his first ride for a couple of years. Flynn’s time was 27.12.

Dan Martin, University of Bath CC and second claim TRC member, was top of the senior times with a fine 20.11. Nick Scott was the best of the TRC riders with 22.21, while Kim Wood clocked the fastest women’s time in 25.53.

Finally, Andy McCall dusted down his tandem and took Sue Shields round the track in a very respectable time of 27.18.

Times for all riders can be viewed in the accompanying PDF files.

As always, thanks go out to the band of helpers who make the event happen. This week they were Shawn Manning, Simon Neame, Adrian Hawkins, Nic Fennell, Brian Hood, Chris Lord, Michael Friend, Terry Fearn and Dave Mastin.
