    It’s the third of five five-mile TTs around the ‘Scalby triangle’ on Friday evening. Sign on by 6.45pm at the latest at Scarborough Rugby Club for a 7pm start. While anyone can ride this event (it’s a Come and Try It event, so you don’t even need to be a member of a club), it’s specifically aimed at junior riders and women. There will be contests over the series for both categories. To take part, you must have a roadworthy bike and, if under 18, a helmet. A red flashing rear light is recommended. It’s free for under 16s.

    Here’s a map of the course, which I grabbed from the website of Scarborough Paragon, where you can find more information about the route.

    Breezy but not too chilly for the third of the 5-mile TTs at Scalby. In the junior points competition, I believe Ed Burnley is now in first place, with brother Elliot Burnley second, and Andrew Prole third.

    Only one rider in the women beginners’ handicap, so Helen Prole earns the maximum 5pts. With two events left, this competition can only realistically be won by Helen or by Hester Butterworth. But those two events are still a good opportunity to dip your toe into TTing if you’ve never tried before.

    Thanks to everyone who helped put on the event, particularly Chris Goode, Elaine Ward and Mick Storey.

    1. Hannah Bayes (Liv Giant, W) 12:42 (23.62mph)
    2. Matt Middleton (club?) 13:44 (21.84mph)
    3. Louise Scupham (club?) 14:10 (21.18mph)
    4. Ed Burnley (SPCC, J) 14:20 (20.93mph)
    5. Adam Scott (club?) 15:35 (19.25mph)
    6. Elliot Burnley (SPCC, J) 17:14 (17.41mph)
    7. Helen Prole (RCC, W) 18:01 (16.65mph)
    8. Andrew Prole (RCC, J) 18:28 (16.25mph)

    9. Will Butterworth (SPCC, J) 23:05 (13.00mph)

    1. Helen Prole (HC 05:01) 13:00 5pts

    14 Helen Prole
    5 Hester Butterworth
    4 Katy Cawthorn

    The next 5-mile TT is on Friday 29 June. The next club TT before that is a 25-mile event from Irton next Wednesday.
