It was a cool & slightly blustery but dry evening down at Salt Ayre for the 12th in 2015's season of Thursday evening time trials, with 81 rides across the three different distances.

John Roberts & Isaac Atkinson were joint fastest of the 21 youngsters tackling the two mile distance, both recording a time of 6 minutes & 4 seconds. Max Davies was 3rd in 6:19, & Luke Oakes 4th in 6:32. Then in 5th to 8th places overall came the top 4 girls: Nancye Roberts (6:35); Emilia Wood (6:39); Esther Wong (6:55); & Megan Howarth (7:01).

23 riders took on the 6 mile distance, with Bobby Horton fastest by a good margin, in 15:53. Jacob Aubrey & James McCracken were separated by just a second, in 2nd & 3rd with times of 17:10 & 17:11 respectively. Fastest girl was Sasha Oldham in 17:34.

At 10 miles the top 3 riders from the field of 37 broke 23 minutes: Tom Phillips 1st in 22:42; Ian Sibbert 2nd in 22:50; and a brilliant ride by young Ben Barlow to take 3rd in 22:59. The fastest woman was Niamh Lewis in 27:55.

If you're local to Lancaster, we've a fine Bank Holiday weekend of racing in store, including the third of Lancaster CC's Bank Holiday Monday 10 mile time trials on the Levens course on Monday morning. But if you want to see Salt Ayre Cog Set riders from across the age categories (6 to 16) in national-level action, check out the three-day, four-stage Screentek International North West Youth Tour. Stage 1 is a short uphill prologue time trial past Ashton Memorial in Williamson Park, Lancaster from 4pm on Saturday afternoon. Stage 2 consists of a long circuit race at Preston's UCLan arena on Sunday. And the race concludes with Stages 3 (in the morning) & 4 (in the afternoon) down at Salt Ayre on Monday - in a full day of action, the first race starts at 9:30am.

Almost 400 riders & their families are coming to the district for the event, which is among the very biggest in the youth cycling calendar. Well worth checking out, and cheering on our local riders; and Cog Set's famous catering crew will be serving delicious food!
