NC&TC TT - Ashley B 8.2mi - Wed 12th May - Report/Results

15th May 2021

On Wednesday we returned to the Ashley B course for round five of the NCTC Club TT league.

Despite our TT co-ordinator being mistaken for team soigneur (supplying riders with gloves and rear lights) and team mechanic (lending allen keys and adjusting gears), David Halliday was fastest overall in a time of 19:47. Simon Plant was close behind in 19:55, making the top-3 for the second week in a row, and only his second race on a TT bike!

Charlotte Smith was the fastest lady, with a time of 22:23 and also the fastest lady up the Moulton-to-Cheveley climb. Sophie Lee was second in 22:45. Sophie was one of many to make big gains over our last event at Ashley, with a huge improvement of 1:15.

Ross Birkett was the fastest man on a road bike in 20:35, and was fastest up both the Dalham and Moulton-to-Cheveley climbs. Rob Speers was close behind in 20:51. Judy Brown was fastest lady on a road bike in 23:39, with Kerry Louise Brennand second in 24:46. Kerry was the fastest lady up the Dalham climb.

For the newcomer competition James Canham was the fastest man in 22:40, with Rob Moon second in 22:54. Josh Arksey was third in 23:13, which was a whopping 1:33 faster than his previous attempt only three weeks ago! Kerry Louise Brennand was also the fastest lady newcomer, with Bethany Broughton second in 26:03.

Donna Hayman and Kerry Tate were fastest in the new “let’s ask David if we can do a last minute 2-up” competition. Donna reported that this was fun, so Kerry will need to work her harder next time!

Special mention to David Cheshire for showing it’s not all about the bike, riding his retro Peugeot (a bike which is older than early TT league leader Jordan Black) to a more than respectable time of 23:11. Wayne Harrod also rode his first TT as a club member.

Thanks to Jordan Black, Martin Smith and Ken Parsons for time keeping, Linda Hones for marshalling, and to Simon Plant’s daughter for being out on course taking photos to make us look fast.
