Well, it was a warm evening with a light breeze that greeted the riders for tonights TT, lower entry than expected but suspect a number of riders are in recovery after the week-end and the solstice rides!

Eat your heart out all those that didn't turn up for tonight's TT. On my way round doing the course check I thought "this is going to be a fast night", just not going to run the 25 due to possible light issues for that one, so a 10 only, but boy was it fast!. On previously damp but fast drying roads, with very little wind it was going to be one of the fastest TT nights so far this year, and so it proved to be. Every one who finished got a PB including guest rider, all riders did a 22 and only 25s separated the field, it was a superfast night with some riders improving by nearly 2 minutes! Fastest club rider, Fabos Young, set a new PB on a road bike and took a minute and a half off his old one, great ride Fabos, well done.

UPDATE: 12th June 2016
Whiston Hilly TT - #10 of the 2016 TT series
On a not too warm or cool evening, so much passing cloud kept blocking out the sun's warmth, but the dropping breeze was in possibly the best direction and was kind to most, if not all riders. 15 signed on, 1 DNS, 1 Off-course (don't ask), and some fast and individually impressive times, think there may be some more PB's in there too. George rode the 3rd ever fastest time recorded on this course.

Well done to everyone, also thanks to TK: Ruth Freestone-King Pusher-off: Ian Stokes and Signs: Ginny and Mark Spittles
Onto the A45 this week for the N7/10 TT, number 9 in this years series of 24 events. We were expecting some quick rides and were not dissapointed. 23 riders signed on, 23 started, 22 finished, everyone was safe.
Some big hitters were already preparing and warming up at the meeting point ready for tonights TT, signing on was busy, and 15 mins after opening it started raining, much to the annoyance of some of the riders waiting. But it quickly dissapated and the breeze that was present started to drop off, then we were all treated to an amazing rainbow that looked like it was rising out of a bright fire, quite a sight ....it looked like another good event on the 45 was going to be....
Expect a number of PB's to appear on the confirmed results when they have been verified.
Thanks to Kevin McAleese (TK) Barry Walker (PO) and Cat Riley (Signs), for their support in making tonights TT run smoothly.
