Inter-Club 10 Miler

There was a large turnout for the Annual Inter-Club Ten Mile Time Trial on the Romney Marsh Newchurch / Ivychurch circuit recently

Almost forty riders turned out for the race, although, due to punctures, two riders did not make it to the starter and a further two failed to finish.

Rye Wheeler, Steve Gooch (24.18) was the fastest rider on the day with Thornton’s Adam Eastwood (24.43) in second place. Ashford Wheelers took the next five places and won the Scatch Team Trophy by a good margin.

The much sought after Handicap Cup was won by the Thornton Road Club team with their first first riders recording a plus time of 9 minutes 47 seconds.

Rye Wheeler, Steve Gooch, was fastest rider on the day

The Handicap Team results were based on 5 riders with the last three seasons times as markers.

The Scratch Team results were based on 6 riders.

Team results as follows:

Handicap Thornton +9:47 Rye +10.27 Ashford +11.04

Scratch Ashford 2:35:39 Rye 2:45:55 Thornton 2:47:03

Congratulations to Adam Eastwood who was fastest on Handicap with a personal best improvement of 1min. 4secs and a very well done to Nigel Tamplin and James Fosbury who both recorded personal best times.

Paul Simpson and Esther Carpenter were the timekeepers and Andy Croft pusher-off. Event organiser, Steve Gooch would also like to thank Ros and her crew for the teas, every marshal and all the riders who made the event such an outstanding success.
