It was a pretty good evening for time trialling at Salt Ayre this week. The rain forecast stayed away, the wind dropped & riding felt sticky but otherwise fast. Some good, personal best, times were certainly recorded. For example Sam Pugh of Garstang CC & Salt Ayre Cog Set, just turned 14, is getting faster every week; last night he rode his new time trial bike over ten miles to a PB 24:06, & he's bound to get faster still! 15 year old Malcolm Neil also rode to a PB, clocking 26:15.

With most of the Cog Set race team taking the night off, the 10 mile top 10 had an older feel to recent weeks. Andrew Horn was first in what could be the fastest 10 mile time ever recorded at Salt Ayre, 21:29; unless anyone knows better, that might be the first time someone's gone below twenty one & a half minutes. Second was Ian Sibbert, just short of his PB in 22:04; and third was fastest woman Lynn Hamel in 22:49. 3rd, 4th & 5th men were a tightly bunched Lancaster CC trio, Tim Norton (23:02), Steve Hodgson (23:04), & Mark Monkhouse (23:08).

An older rider was fastest over six miles too, with Brian Murray recording 14:41. Fastest of the youngsters was 13 year old Cog Set Youth B rider Evie Barrow in a fine 15:53, ahead of a trio of lads, Ben Pennance (16:06), James McCracken (16:22), & Adam Hodgson (16:27).

Quickest over two miles was 10 year old Max Davies in 6:04, followed by 9 year old Luke Oakes in 6:14 and fastest girl 9 year old Emilia Wood in 6:23. Third boy was Ethan Yates in 6:30, and 2nd & 3rd girls Megan Howarth (6:47) & Amelie Earnshaw (7:21).

Anyone who'd like a rider to get an honourable mention in these weekly write-ups, please just drop an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Thanks! I can only mention what I know!

Finally, before the full results from the evening, a note from Bob Muir, Club President & time-keeper extraordinnaire:

"Thanks very much to those who took on marshalling duties tonight, some at very short notice – we could not continue to run the events in this format without the assistance of volunteers. Please don’t be shy at coming forward. Just contact Tim Norton or register on volunteer spot. On another note, the yellow timing box we use at Salt Ayre is - like any computer - pretty thick. It doesn’t know how far you are racing and just carries on waiting for you to cross the mat. So please, when you have a chip on your bike only cross the mat whilst you are racing. If you cross before you start it throws a "sulk" as it does not know what time you were due to start and thinks you completed the first lap in a negative time, and computers don’t like negative times! On the other hand if you have finished your distance and carry on lapping it merrily goes on adding lap times which makes me unhappy as I have to manually subtract the times to find out what time you did for the distance."
