This event was run on the P128/25 course, with 26 riders taking part. It was a dry evening without too much wind, although several people commented that it wasn’t a particularly fast day.
In 2016 Phil Wilks won the event with James Peckham in second place. James was keen to add the 25 mile championship trophy to his growing collection, and rode a perfectly paced time trial to win the event by 39 seconds from Phil.
Special mentions go to…
- >> Ed Slot for placing third overall on a standard road bike
- >> Angela Burnikell as the fastest woman
- >> Tim Cooke for taking a 2 mile diversion to avoid the roadworks
- >> Dan Edwards for doing a very impressive 1:01:42 only a few weeks after being back on the bike after major hip surgery
We’d also like to draw attention to two riders who did not have working rear lights. With a lot of shade from trees on parts of this course it is especially important to be visible to passing cars. A member of the public reported this to one of the marshalls, having only seen a rider at the last second when approaching them.
