Round 14 Catalina Architecture TT Series – 4th August

With seven riders on the start list and a combined age of 384, it was definitely a night for the seniors to shine.

With the previous two rounds being cancelled, the riders were rested and ready to take on the undulating 10 mile course in the scenic Rheidol valley. The weather was warm with very little wind to assist the riders on the outward or return leg.

Caron Pugh had a great ride to take the overall win for the men in 22.55 and is edging closer to the men’s senior club record held by Gareth Hodgson set in 2019. In second overall place Ian Brandreth crossed the line in 28.24 and set a new personal best time. Taking the third overall spot and smashing the 30 minute barrier was Mike Fitch, with 29.26.

In the ladies overall placings Anita Saycell took the win with her time of 27.26, while Elaine Rowlands took the overall win for the road bike category with her time of 32.12.

The men’s road bike category (no TT bars) saw Ian Brandreth take the win, Mike Fitch in second place and Martin Williams completing the podium in third place.

Well done to all the riders that competed on the night, and thank you to the TT organisers and time keepers ensuring the safety of the riders.

The next event sees the Catalina Architecture TT Series return to the Llety Gwyn 10 mile course on Wednesday 11th August.
