Catalina Architecture & Design TT series 2024 – Round 8 results

Earlier in the day the best of the British riders battled out the British Time Trial Championships, including our local regular pro rider Lowri Richards and our course record holder Josh Tarling. A fantastic win for Josh to earn the national stripes and great to see local names in the line up!

Inspired by the local successes, nine riders turned out for a sunny evening on the Cwm Rheidol 10 mile course to test their lungs and legs. With light winds from the north west, there would be no weather excuses!

Caron proved the strongest on the night taking the win, with his 22.13 time. In second place, it was great to see long time club member back on the TT bike and proving he hasn’t lost any TT speed. Dewi Hughes crossed the line in 23.58. Completing the podium Adam Hepburn, riding strongly on his road bike to cross the line 24.05.

In the ladies event, Anita crossed the line in 27.25 to take the win, with Emma on her road bike, riding strongly to finish in 27.30.

Mike Fitch and Martin Williams battled the 70+ category, with Mike taking the win in 29.39. Congratulations too to David Bond, dipping under that 30 minute barrier on his road bike and taking two and a half minutes from the first Cwm Rheidol Time Trial he rode this year!

Well done to all the riders and to Andy H, Derek, Scott and Elaine for time keeping and marshalling making the event possible.

Next week (26 June) the series moves to the Devil’s Bridge Hilly time trial course. This course is just over 25km and heads out through Moriah, Devil’s Bridge and Ponterwyd. Further sign on details will be posted on the Club Facebook page.
