Barrow CW Coast Road 21 1-7-15 640x480

The latest (& 5th in the series of 8) in this season's Inter Club Hilly events took place on the coast road between Ulverston & Barrow-in-Furness on Wednesday.

On a warm evening under stormy skies the two Lancaster CC representatives finished almost exactly 10 minutes apart. Continuing his fine season, Tom Brook finished 2nd on the night in 49:14, just one second behind winner Peter Thomas of Kent Valley RC (49:13). Apparently these are the 2nd & 3rd quickest times ever recorded on the course (despite a flurry of PBs, the course record remained intact at 48:39). Meanwhile Dave Horton finished 28th of the 42 riders in 59:15, but was happy just to 'break the hour' over the rolling course.

Thanks to everyone involved in what was a lovely event - friendly & welcoming, & (if you manage to look up!) the course runs through a stunning part of the world.

We'll have to wait and see what the event has done to the Inter Club competition standings, but with only two LCC riders as against 10 from Kent Valley, 12 from Lakes RC & 13 from Barrow, it's likely to see us toppled from the leader board! So an extra incentive, if you need one, to make a note & get along to the next event - Monday 3rd August, 7pm - Kent Valley's Jungle Cafe Hilly time trial.

Fantastic turnout for this Inter-Club event, on a very humid evening with the rain just about holding off.
There were some excellent times with the first 3 posting sub 50 minute rides, honours on the night going to Peter Thomas (Kent Valley RC) in 49:13, just pipping Tom Brook of Lancaster CC by 1 second. Third was Dave Huck (Lakes RC) in 49:50.

Another bucket load of PB's for the regulars on the course, so congratulations to...
Dave Huck, Darren Brackwell, Kieran Lacey, Sean Casson, Shaun Johnston, Mike Connolly, John Evason, Tony Johnston, Joshua Bailey & Alex Fairer
