Catalina Architecture & Design TT series 2024 – Round 2 results

This week saw twelve riders taking on the flatter Llety Gwyn course, named after the local hotel that used to be the sign on location for this 10 mile time trial.

The Llety Gwyn course is one of the oldest of the club courses. The route heads out on the A44, then down towards Cwm Rheidol to reach the 5 mile point, before returning back to the start.

Many notable names have ridden this course. British professional cyclist, Leah Dixon holds the women’s course record set in 2021, with her time off 22.20. While Josh Tarling, riding at the time for Flanderscolor-Galloo in 2022, holds the fastest men’s time with 19.31.

Last night saw Finley Tarling take the win on the night, with Caron and Rich battling for 2nd and 3rd. Caron took the spoils this week with Rich closely following only 21 seconds behind.

In the ladies event, Lowri Richards, looking strong from a good winter of training, took the win with her time of 24.31 and Anita taking second in 27.22.

These events are a fantastic way for riders to test themselves against the clock, and provide great training for all cyclists and triathletes.
