This week’s event had less than 20 riders, probably due to a combination of it being a two lapper and the heavy rainfall before the start.
The fastest rider was Ross Turner with a 41.51 with Angela Ackerley being the fastest lady with a 51.11.
Spare a thought for Emel Perry. She was knocked off her bike by a car whilst warming up. She was taken to hospital and was found to have a fractured elbow as well as a gashed knee. However, she was still perky enough to ask about the state of her bike. Thanks to all those who helped her. Get well soon Emel!
A windy evening didn’t deter Aaron Preston as he set the season’s quickest time so far with a 19:21. Lauren Watson was again the fastest lady with a 23:30.
