Racing at weekend.
Updated: Aug 11, 2019
Saturday 10th August,
Tickhill Velo C.C., 10 mile time trial on the O10/1 (Hatfield Woodhouse near Doncaster).
Number 61, Phil Tyas goes at 3-06pm.
Number 77, Rob Keyte goes at 3-17pm.
This course is very open and exposed to any west winds. The surface is not the best and passing the `prison` it is broken up rather badly.
So have a safe ride lads.
Sunday 11th August,
Team Sportslab presents the Yorkshire 10 mile Championship.
Course, V714 (Gilberdyke - Howden & back). Newport, East Riding is the HQ.
Number 52, Phil Tyas goes at 2-52pm.
Number 89, George Miles goes at 3-29pm.
Phil must like these draggie courses, 2 in a weekend. The surface is not very smooth but it is flat, that is until you have to get over a railway bridge and a motorway bridge going and coming back. It is usually fairly quiet.
If I have missed anyone racing in other events, I`m sorry. Any information to George or post on here. Ta.
Saturday, Phil`s race cancelled on Friday due to weather conditions.
Sunday was only marginally better, Phil timed in at 23m 24s, George Miles was 6 minutes slower with 29m 06s. Winner, Phil Graves 20m 04s.
It was a head wind to the turn, so savage at times it was difficult to hold a straight line and coming back wasn`t as good as expected.
Phil managed a 4 mile run afterwards - a leg loosener !
