Not the best TT for me as organiser this week. Having diligently cycled the route pre-event and found it clear, a tractor sneaked out after I had left for the event and deposited mountains of muck all along the road out of Hibaldstow. Ok, a bit of hyperbole, but thanks to Simon and Isaac for alerting us so that Fabulous Fiona starting the riders could pass on the information.
Then there was the speed limit furore. There was a complaint from a resident that competitors were breaking the speed limit through Hibaldstow as evidenced by the speed detectors at two points in the village. While most of us can only wish we were capable of this, I must stress that all participants MUST adhere to the Highway Code at all times and this includes abiding by the speed limits.
From the 7th July there will be marshals at the speed detectors and anyone observed breaking the speed limit will be disqualified. Likewise, anyone evidenced to have been discourteous to residents will be DQ.
Meanwhile, another great race with no rain! Congratulations to Bevan Jones on breaking the 20-minute barrier. His 19:23 is the course record for the new course this year. Sheehan Quirke notched up a wonderful effort on 21:14 and Simon Abdy, another consistently fast rider, followed him in on 21:24. Six other riders broke the 23-minute mark. Jayne Baldwin put in a PB effort to be the first lady to get under 26 minutes this year and beat off stiff opposition from the impressive Rachel Gottlieb. Vikki Wilson took the 3rd spot and Imogen Hall had a fantastic ride to finish 4th in 27:02 and take 3rd Lincsquad female on the night.
Many thanks to everyone who marhsalled for the evening, you did a fantastic job.
I only have one volunteer for 7th July so please let me know if you can help out.
Good luck to everyone doing Coast to Coast this weekend. Have a great ride and stay safe.
