WVCC Club 10s – Guardian Cup Round 4 – 1st June 2016

A difficult evening to read as the riders turned up to sign on tonight. A bit heavy perhaps, but a cross-tailwind start, and even a bit of a tail-finish. This of course meant that there would be a headwind on the A50. Never good.

Nevertheless, 24 riders started, hoping to snatch at least a second or two from the PBs tat they had previously set. This was not to be in the main, and stories of a tough night were rippling around the car park after the event.

Lee Suthard was riding this evening, and was of first as he had a prior engagement that he needed to get to. The meant that Ann had to do a PB in her car to get to the finish to beat him there, as we had already witnessed Lee tonking along at 30mph as a warm-up(!)

In the end, despite the conditions, Lee came home with the fastest time of 22:04, the nearest next best time was over three minutes down by Chris Gilbertson, and then a flying Jo Blakeley, belting over the finish line to grab a PB.

* Non members will not gain points for Guardian Cup.

In fact, Jo’s PB meant that she was third best Guardian Cup point scorer for the night, just behind Nick Butterworth, improving his current PB for the competition by 37 seconds, riding fixed. Both were beaten for maximum points for the night by Patrick Lucas, improving his last year’s PB by 106 seconds. The only other rider to improve on PB for the evening, was new member Rob Amson.
