With traffic lights still on the course at Devil’s Bridge, it meant that the riders would be ‘treated’ to a much shorter time trial.  With the revised route starting at Southgate and climbing continuously to the finish, it may have been shorter but definitely not any easier.

With eight riders taking on the course in wet conditions, it was going to be a good night to see who would be strongest mentally and physically on this shorter hilly course.

With no ladies riding, it was left to the men to battle it out for the podium.  The rider that proved the strongest on the evening was TT organiser Andy Hunt in a time of 27.50 earning the top podium spot.  Finishing closely behind was Rhys Evans in 28.08, and taking the third podium spot was Adam Hepburn in 28.38.

Well done to all the riders in tough conditions and to Derek, Nia and Scott for marshalling and time keeping the event.

With only 5 events left there is something for everyone from 1 mile to the 10 mile course.  It’s a great chance to come along, set a time and enjoy catching up with other riders.
