A quick report on today’s local open TT. 3 WVCC riders started but sadly only 2 finished as Caroline Fearon retired at 34 miles but will be back for more next week.
Second quickest in our colours was Alan Shuttleworth riding fixed wheel and he was happy with his time of 2:31:24. Alistair Stanway was disappointed as he faded in the last 10 miles after passing through the 25 mile point in less than one hour. His final time of 2:02:48 was however quicker than his previous ride on this course a few weeks back, so a sub 2 hour Cheshire 50 will surely happen very soon, thus getting back to his best form last season.
Winner was National 100 mile and competition record holder, Charlie Taylor of Team Bottrill who stopped the clock at 1:45:55. Another ride of note was Dame Sarah Storey who is looking good for this Summer’s Paralympics as she came inside the top 10 overall with the second fastest ride ever on this course by a women of 1:54:40!
