We’re on the Malton/Pickering course for the TT this Wednesday, at the slightly later time of 7.30pm to allow the commuter traffic to clear from the A169. This is an interclub event, so should be well attended. We meet at the industrial estate north of the Kirby Misperton/Flamingoland turnoff. As usual, it’s £3 to ride and all club members aged 12+ are welcome. More details below.
This Friday, meanwhile, it’s the third of five 5-mile introductory TTs aimed primarily at junior riders and women riders. Meet and sign on in the Rugby Club car park at Scalby by 6.45pm for a 7pm start. Junior riders can take part for free, and because it’s a Come and Try It event you don’t need to be a member of a club either.14th June 2018 at 10:09 am #6917Dan JoyceKeymaster
Finally: a nice warm night with very little wind. The Malton course had been roughly surface-dressed with chippings for about a mile, and it was rough enough to see your speed ticking down while you were on it, but otherwise the conditions were great. It was slightly quicker back from the turn.
There were PBs all over the place. I’ve listed only those that I know about, from RCC riders. Tony Cawthorn knocked four seconds off his best time, which was at Snainton. Dave Bower knocked over a minute off his PB. Katy Cawthorn got a 2018 PB, and I think it wasn’t far off an overall PB. But despite riding out from Scarborough, Trish Dunn beat her by 24 seconds, getting a massive PB – something like 2 minutes off her previous best. Mark Williams, who has stepped up his game this season, got into the 23s for the first time. I knocked a handful of seconds off my previous best on this course. (Edit: Although I’ve just found that I’ve done 23:26 on the old version of this course, so not really a PB for me.)
At the sharp end of the race, the fast guys were doing over 26mph, with Steve Dodds (1st) and Ben Harmer (2nd) doing over 27mph. There were some close results all the way down the field. Bad luck to Kev Allen, who punctured.
Thanks to Malton Wheelers for putting this event on and for the coffee and cakes afterwards. And thanks also to Mick and Elaine for assisting.
