Yet another blustery evening up at Hatton. Quelle surprise!!!

RCC took the night 30pts – 25pts with Rob Green leading the way again. Independent Tim Pugh took 2nd, with Stuart Lloyd putting in a lung busting performance to take 3rd with a fine PB of 24:21 for the Wheelers. Al Orme followed close behind with 24:31.

But it wasn’t the top of the leader-board where all the action was taking place this week. RCC Juniors, Kathryn Schofield and Nathan Hampson were putting in strong performances to knock nearly 3mins and 1min 30secs of their PB’s respectively.

Kathryn has been bobbing along for weeks, but a coaching session before hand paid dividends with the biggest performance of the night. She smashed her end of year target with a superb 28:58. RCC’s Jess McCann also put in a strong performance with a fabulous 29:43.

Other fine PB’s included Phil Turner, Alex Buckley and Ray Threlfall

Wheelers’ Rob McGregor arrived tonight on a beautiful looking new ride. Uncharacteristically of Rob, he finished with a 27:15. He tried to justify this slower than usual ride by claiming he had a stitch and had to stop to stretch it off. We actually believe he stopped to admire is fine new ride, take it all in, before meandering to the finish line 🙂

All riders welcome, whether club members or not 🙂
