The weather gods smiled upon the Lincsquad TTs again this week. A day that started very wet found some lovely sunshine for the evening and there was very little water left on the course by the off. The dreaded headwind home had returned but was more benign this week. Sheehan Quirke, flying home in 21:27, reversed positions for TT3 with Simon Abdy (21:53). Chris Ware sustained his excellent form finishing in a PB of 22:02 with Stuart Martin and Jon Challen also breaking the 23 minute mark.
Rachel Gottlieb continued her dominance of the ladies’ race dropping her time to 26:06 this week despite eschewing anything resembling aero bars. Jayne Baldwin had another great ride to take second with Vikki Wilson 3rd and first Lincsquad lady.
Kev Wilson provided a talking point this week, missing his start by 11 seconds. He elected not to start. Luckily for him, Jacob had mechanical issues and was unable to compete and Kev slotted into the vacant spot later in the field.
Many thanks to Malcolm Marshall, Mark Gollings, Stephen Cannings, and Steve Hall for their marshalling and to the wonderful Time Team, Julie, Catherine and Fiona. There are still plenty of marshal spots for June if you have not volunteered yet.
A special thank you to Vikki for the drink (much appreciated) and the entertainment (even better). I am not sure Wal was so amused by the attempt to break into his car. I will be publishing The Adventures of Rachel and Vikki at the end of the series.
