IVCA 25 TT Championship, Moy Valley.
Not cold, not too windy, very wet:-)
19 riders and ten marshals / timekeepers turned out for the 25 TT Champs this morning. The benefit of a proper HQ showed up very well with about half of us retiring into Mother Hubbards’ for a hearty breakfast after the event.
The Championship went to Hugh by a margin of just three seconds over Ian with the third place going to Pat Byrne. I believe the result proves the efficacy of the new age standards with elite standard rides at age 41 and 69 rightly being so close. We had an even closer call on the Handicap result. Deanne was the only rider beat handicap . Ian lowered his PB and the IVCA Age 42 record to 53:50 also mopping up the age 41 and 40 records. This being only his second 25 he was riding off scratch so not up there in the handicap result.. Patsy took the age 82 record off Kevin and of course Kevin set a new age 84 record. I was happy that my leg injury survived without any aggravation so lots to be happy about. Unfortunately no photographer today.
