WVCC Club 10s – Guardian Cup Round 9 – 3rd August 2016

A massively windy, gusty night only brought 11 entrants to this evening’s 10, and with time running out in the Guardian Cup series, there was a feeling of ‘nothing to lose, everything to gain’ with the determined faces at the start line.

Some riders will have benefited from the tail wind on parts of the A50, and some good times were recorded.

For the results of the night, Chris Gilbertson romped homewith a great time of 24:39, with Nick Butterworth 2nd – 25:19, and a determined 3rd from Steve Marlow with 26:03. Also coming in with a highly respectable 29:50 in her first time trial, our newest member Alison, made a sterling effort, following her first club run last Sunday on our beginner’s ride. A benchmark now set to beat!
