Catalina Architecture & Design TT series 2024 – Round 9 results

With a change to the planned course, the riders were treated to the well established flatter 10 mile course instead. With a warm 18 degrees and westerly light winds it proved a favourable night for fast times.

Caron Pugh continued his fantastic form this season with a time of 21.50 that placed him well ahead of the other riders and firmly on the podium in first place. It was great to see Gari Jones back riding his road bike on this course and earning second place, with David Bond continuing to knock more time of his previous course PB (Personal Best) to place third on the podium.

For the ladies, it was a one woman race with Anita taking the win and edging closer to breaking the 27 minute barrier.

In the 70+ category, proving that age is no barrier to speed, Mike Fitch rode strongly on his TT bike knocking nearly two minutes from his first time back on the course this year. While Martin Williams continues to show his strength on his road bike riding consistently each week and edging closer to that sub 30 minute time.

It was fantastic to see Llyr Morgan back and shaving 30 seconds from his previous time!

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

Next week (3 July), the series heads back to the Cwm Rheidol 10 time trial course. Further sign on details will be posted on the Club Facebook page.
