Saturday TTL-02. Hatchet Inn, 06/05/2017/
Fifteen riders, two timekeepers and no marshals showed up on a bright but cold and windy morning at The Hatchet Inn. The new management of the Inn made us very welcome and look forward to us continuing to use the venue.
The age standard category was again won by Ian with another elite class performance followed by Joe and Ken in second and third. Joe won on handicap and was the only rider to beat handicap on the day, kudos due for that.
The marshaling issue will be addressed elsewhere as it’s a point we can’t compromise on.
Next TT is Tuesday evening, 9th at Kilcock. Forecast is good as of now and we hope for another good evening turnout as last week and good times on our first visit there this season.
See y’all there,
Unforeseen circumstances arose last week resulted in no report appearing so I’ll catch up here.
We had a great turnout of 33 riders for the Tom Dempsey 10 TT. and also a full compliment of marshals so all went well except for an unpleasant altercation with an Irate and non to reasonable motor cyclist. Hugh was a clear winner on age standard while second, Neil, down to eighth place were all within a minute of each other whilst another minute cover the next eight.
It was a great night in spite of the cold and wind with ten riders beating handicap so a lot of satisfied folks around.
Comiserations to Ian who punctured whilst on a super fast ride ( again 🙂 ).
Thanks to Harry and Paul on timekeeping duties. On this note we all record our best wishes to Dave Cormack for continued recovery from his horrendous accident which is looking like being for some time yet.
