This week’s evening 10 mile time trial was the penultimate one of the 2021 season. A sunny afternoon turned into a rather cloudy and cool one by the time riders took to the start line. The wind was quite strong from the north east which did affect times to a degree. A total of 37 riders signed on, made up with 14 juniors and 23 seniors.

Our fastest junior rider was also the fastest overall. Sam Hodge of Trainsharp recorded a very good time of 21.29. In second place in the junior field was Tallulah Butcher, who was both quickest girl and first Thanet RC rider in a very respectable time of 25.26. Dougie Tulett was the first Thanet RC boy with 27.55, which was also a PB. Lawson Bax was unable to finish due to dropping his chain.

The positions of fastest male and female senior riders both went to second claim members; Shawn Manning recorded 22.40, while Jenny Benson’s time was 26.51. Simon Henderson was second senior and fastest Thanet RC member in a time of 23.31, while quickest Thanet RC woman was Faye Faiers with 27.11.

Next week is the final evening "10", and the roadworks which caused delays this week are still likely to be ongoing so you may need to consider allowing more time to get to the park.

Please see the PDF files for times of all riders.

This week’s helpers were Terry Fearn, David Tulett, Andy McCall and Dave Mastin.
