TTL_09. 50 mile TT Championship. Moy Valley.
A fair morning for our last championship event.
Thirteen brave souls took on the test looked after by Medic ( not sure who was on duty ), timekeeper Harry and a full compliment of marshals so thanks to all, with four roundabouts to negotiate it’s great to have every junction covered.
Gold medal ride was by Hugh Davis with a super 2:06:06, and an Age Standard time of Plus 28:41.
In the process he actually lowered his previous years age record for a new age 71 record. On handicap Hugh was 6th.
Silver medal goes to Pat Byrne with a 1:58:24 ride for Plus 23:38. Pat took 5th place on handicap.
Bronze medal goes to Ian Cassidy with 1:54:16 for a Plus 22:52.
Fourth place was Phil Ormrod with 2:18:56 for a Plus 19:43, also good enough for a new age 74 record lowering Fred Harte’s 2013 record by one minute exactly. Phil also took first place on handicap.
5th place goes to Mark Kidd with 2:00:47 for a plus 18:47 on his debut 50 TT with us.
6th place goes to Peter Raftery with 2:10:39 for a Plus 18:16 and also taking 4th place on handicap.
