A big thanks to them, as without them the event would not be able to go ahead.

At least the rain stopped!

The last evening TT of our season was sabotaged by the weather and with the heavy rain over the last few days and heavy rain all day, it seemed that the conditions were going to be miserable. Not, saying they weren’t and it was wet, cold and the roads were awash with debri from the verges, but at least the rain stopped.

Weather was responsible for now shows

The start sheet was the casulty of the night. With almost half of the field of signed up riders reporting to be DNS.

This did not take away the efforts of those who rode, and the competition was still apparent with rider banter and encouragement at HQ and at the start.

Course changed

This evenings TT event was due to be on the Old 9.4m TT course, but due to the road surfacing it was moved to our Lamport 10m TT course, and we shortened to finish just after the start but before the turn point to return to Old, as this was part of the resurfacing, making the course riden 9.8 miles.

Well done to all the riders on the night, braving the weather and making the TT a successful event.

Here’s the result for KCC and guest riders.

KCC Riders

KCC Tony Brown, first 22:32, Hudson Hendry, second, 24:04 (course PB improving from last weeks 24:39) and Eddie Smith 25:00 overcoming losing his chain a couple of times and still achieving a solid time for third.

Junior, taking the win was Hudson with Lucas Buksh 30:44 taking second place.
