Inter Club TT Results on 1 August - Q10/26

Possibly the hottest day of the year so far saw 26 riders take part in the fourteenth inter club event of the season.

Only six more to go. Riders faced quite a challenge against the wind going out to the turn but coming back were really able to pick up speed. Unfortunately the traffic seemed busier than usual and the hot weather seemed to bring out the dodgy drivers. Several riders had to contend with very poor standards of driving and consequently lost time.
There were still several PB's to report though with Mike Turner, James Bulley OBE, Duncan Cochrane,  Olly Hatfield, and Dan Goscomb all recording PB's over the distance and Penny Bulley and Martin Brown recording PB's for that course.
James reported "I note there are quite a few excuses in the top order so I should mention mine. I hit a moose crossing the road and crashed out. But undeterred I lifted it up, carried it to the roadside, buried it, re-built my bike, and carried on and did a PB."
Big Jon Hollidge backs this story up - "I can concur James tale as I witnessed the incident. I saw the event whilst I stopped for a pint on the way to the turn"
Thanks as ever to all helpers - Glenda Goscomb, Andy Evans, Time Livsey, Dave Lobley and Tony Lamoury.
Well done to all 7Oaks riders who reinforced our lead in the inter club competition. 
Scores on the night - 7Oaks 43, GS Avanti 25 and Sydenham 3.
Position with six events to go - 7Oaks Tri 403, Sydenham Wheelers 338 and GS Avanti 293. 
Next week it's back on the same course again for a 7pm start. GS Avanti are the organising club.
