Triangle 18. Cooling down

Triangle Time Trial Series 2018

It might be getting towards the end of the Triangle Series but there’s still time to set the fastest ride of the year and a good but definitely cooler night on Thursday 9th August certainly presented that opportunity.

Head towards Arthington

Helen Goldthorpe set the fastest  women’s time of 2018 – so far – at Triangle 17 last week with a 34:16 and was only 15 seconds slower this week and was fastest woman, scoring 5 points too. So, it was left to Sam Ward to set a new faster time for the men and he duly obliged, recording 28:13 and taking 10 seconds off his time set 19th July and also taking 8 points.

Chris Yates once again took the maximum 10 points, series leader Tom Broadley 1 point behind with 9 and series second placed rider Stuart Newbould scoring 4. Gill Arnett was highest scoring woman with 8 points.

That there beer garden was heaving last week

Thank you of course to timekeepers, helpers and marshals.

Next week it’s a double header with a combined 10 & 15 on the A168 near Boroughbridge on Tuesday 14th August and the 12 1/2 on Thursday 16th. Please note: Both events start earlier at 7.00 pm.
