Sunday 23rd August saw the 8th & final event in this season's Inter Club Hilly Time Trial competition - The Circuit of Wild Boar Fell from Sedbergh, which replaced the planned Shap & Back ride because of temporary traffic lights on the A6 at Shap. The weather was good, just a bit windy. The event was won by Kent Valley's Peter Thomas in 1:11:50. We had 2 riders in the field of 15 - Tom Brook who came a fine 2nd, in 1:12:51; and John Hatton who finished 6th in 1:22:05.

The full results:

1. Peter Thomas (KVRC) 1:11:50

2. Thomas Brook (Lanc CC) 1:12:51

3. Tom Gibson (KVRC) 1:13:37

4. Kieran Lacey (Lakes RC) 1:14:30

5. Andrew Barlow (KVRC)1:18:39

6. John Hatton (Lanc CC) 1:22:05

7. Mike Packham (KVRC) 1:23:03

8. Tim Bennett (KVRC) 1:23:06

9. Dave Wilkinson (KVRC) 1:24:05

10. Richard Belk (KVRC) 1:29:12

11. Amanda Howard (L, KVRC) 1:30:26

12. Richard Bryan (KVRC) 1:33:04

13. Gareth Connett (Guest) 1:37:15

14. Clive Boothman (KVRC) 1:40:55

15. Peter Knott (KVRC) 1:57:37

With all events done, the final Inter Club table looks like this:

Kent Valley RC 2238 points
Lancaster CC 1332 points
Lakes RC 1293 points
Barrow CW 843 points
Lune RCC 328 points

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So with Tom & John's participation in the final event, & only the one Lakes RC rider, we did a last-minute move up from 3rd to 2nd! But Kent Valley were clear winners this year, getting an impressive number of riders out not only for their 'home' events, but away ones too. Congratulations to them. But let's hope - as it looks like it will - the series runs again next year, & we can get our revenge! And well done to the individual riders who amassed most points for their clubs: Kent Valley's George Wharton (297), LCC's Tom Brook (291), Lake RC's Craig Steele (194), Barrow CW's Sean Casson (132), & Lune's David Deakins (78).

Huge thanks to Andrew Barlow for organising the series, & for all those who helped out across the series. And yes, may there be more next year!
