Hilly TT Championship

A warm summer evening brought out the biggest field of the season for the Hilly 14mile TT Championship. 18 riders (14 OCC, 4 guests) took on the lumpy course around Farnley and Norwood, including several first time TT riders, and also racers from the junior/U23 team. A strong westerly wind meant a tough middle section, but a fast finish.

Fastest on the night was Sam Ward, with a 35:38, putting him 13s ahead of guest rider Matt Chipping, and winning him the men’s Hilly Trophy. Rachel Crowther posted a 56:20 to take the women’s competition, whilst James Luxton took the youth prize with a 44:35. Fastest on handicap was Ian Cullen.

The points race remains close, with Jon Hobbs on 40 points, but 5 riders within 7 points of the lead.

Next week is the 10mile TT Championship, on the faster and flatter course at Walshford. Anyone who wishes to race, please get in touch with Liam Mealey (liammealey@hotmail.com) by Wednesday 20th July. Details of future events are here, and marshaling slots here

Well done all, and thank you to all volunteers
