Otley Cycle Club Women 4th in British Best All Rounder team competition

How do you cap off off a successful season in which you’ve competed in the CTT Team Time Trial National Championships, finished in the top 10 in both the YCF SpoCo Competition and the YCF Points Competition and recorded personal bests?

Well, the Otley CC trio of Claire Jessop, Helen Goldthorpe and our new President Liz Hills have done just that by finishing 4th in the Cycling Time Trials British Best All Rounder (BAR) 2-Distance team competition.




Calculated from combined speeds achieved in 25 and 50-mile TTs, Claire Helen and Liz achieved an average speed of 21.739 mph. The winning team were Kirsty Bradley, Alex Smethurst and Sally Withey of Team Swift, achieving 24.468 mph.

All three appear in the 2-Distance BAR individual rankings too, Claire in 59th with 23.043 mph, Helen 75th with 22.332 mph and Liz 122nd with 19.843 mph.

Our 2017 Club BAR Phil Mason is 103rd in the Men’s 3-Distance BAR – 50 mile, 100 mile and 12 hour – with a speed of 19.954.


Well done to all!
