Barnesbury 21mile Hilly TT

Some excellent racing was had at the Barnesbury hilly 21 mile time trial this afternoon up at Belsay.  Represented by Elliot, Garry, Mick P, Gavin S and Kerry, battling the insanely blustery conditions, it is safe to say we all had a little bit of fun and apart from some white knuckles, we all stayed upright! 

Spending most of his time riding at a 45degree angle, captain of the ship Elliot had the shining performance flying around in 50:40! 

Garry had a strong ride finding it tough on the hills but coming home in 52:26!  

Next up Mick, at 53:21 came out with the best quote of the day over tea and cake!  Something along the lines of almost personally redesigning the bonnet badge of an on coming VW.  I don't think he is quite sure how he managed to get back on to his own side of the road!

Gavin, taking part in his very first time trial had a great performance staying well under the hour in 57:37.  I'm sure after those conditions he will be put off testing for life.

Finishing with Kerry, getting stronger and stronger as every week goes on, an excellent 3rd place today saw her scoop a well earned podium amongst some exceptionally fast racers on display!  

Well done everyone and also for just missing out on the team prizes.

With the first half out the way, over to you James, Matt, Angela W, Rob, Angela C and Georgia.  Have a smashing day and update me please as soon as you have a result!
