2018 TT #10/25 A45 10TT

Well, I said it was quick........the previous course record stood for 17yrs, how long will the new one stand? 
So, after being unable to use the course at all during 2017 due to ongoing roadworks, tonight was going to be a test of the new road surface which having been laid almost a year ago, should now be well settled and smoothed out.
It was a breezy and cool evening, not one that would have been called a floater, and no one mentioned anything about it looking like a fast evening! The course record has stood since 2001, so effectively 16yrs due to being unable to use it at all in 2017, set by Sam Barker at 19:43, but tonight two riders beat that CR, George Fox with a 19:22, and then a new outright record being set by a very, very, happy Stuart Travis with a blistering 18:44. What a superb ride with an average speed of approx 32mph! Also a mention for young Trystan Barnett, 15yrs of age and the club Junior Champ, who set a personal best time of 23:25, beating his father, Lee, by almost 3 minutes!
Seven riders set personal best's for a 10TT tonight, not just for this course but absolute personal bests. Very well done to everyone who participated tonight, and to the support team, Steven (TK), Mark (PO) and Paul (Signs).
Now I'm just looking forwards to a real floater of an evening to see what happens, is a 17 possible..........
