Today’s CWCC 18 Mile TT was won by GTR – Return To Life’s Chris Smart in a very good time of 38:26. Nice to see former Wheeler Chris return to his home patch to claim a well-deserved victory, 15 seconds ahead of last year’s winner, Philip Graves.
The race also featured very good showings by CWCC’s Juniors & Juveniles, Ross & Aaron finishing just 3 seconds apart in 6th & 7th respectively.
A full photo gallery will be available on Monday.

The East Cleveland Klondike Grand Prix, which takes place on Sunday 2 April 2017, has the potential to become a very important date on the professional cycle racing calendar in the UK.
Our race is particularly challenging and hence is has been moved to the front of the race list. It is part of the HSBC Business Spring Elite Series & we have managed to make this race the qualifier for the Tour de Yorkshire.
The Klondike is endorsed and run through British Cycling. The race is for professional riders and we hope to be welcoming 120 – 140 professional riders and their teams.
