Racing 4 – March 2016

The Jessops keep the Otley CC time-trial flag flying!

Claire and Greg were in action once again over the Easter weekend, riding the Ilkley Cycling Club 10-mile time-trial on the Addingham based V810 on Easter Sunday.

Event Secretary Ewan Farrow called the day ‘tough’ which inevitably made the demanding course even more so. Chapeau to Claire and Greg for turning out on a day when 20 of the 49 entrants didn’t start. Greg finished in 34:29 and Claire in 35:15. Alastair Wareham of SSLL Racing Team was the overall winner in 24:34 with Karen Taylor of East Bradford CC fastest woman in 31:36.

The event was part of the YCF Yorkshire SpoCo (Sporting Courses) series and Claire is currently in third place in the womens competition with 2236 points, only 3 points behind joint leaders Maria Mulleady of Drighlington BC and Karen Taylor..
