TTing season will end soon but for now it's still all go, Castle Combe on Wednesday is still happening and this week it was a club championship race, Tom Saunders was joined by Wayne Williams, Matt Norris, Jeremy Tiley and Chris Britten on this Warm Autumn evening with the hope they could bring this one home. But despite 4 PB's on this course it was not to be.
Tom Saunders kept up his run of being fastest Sodbury rider on the night with 21st/116 riders in a time 22:19.45. Wayne Williams was next with 30th in the time 22:55.92, Matthew Norris followed in 37th and he continues to improve with the time 23:22.85, Chris Brittens times are finally going in the right direction finishing 43rd with 23:34.04 and Jeremy rounded the night off with 50th and 24:06.85.
Today was the third round of the interclub TT series and hosted by Kingswood Tri, 25 riders turned up with riders from most of the Bristol Clubs, 1st place went to Jake Sargent with a blistering time 20:42, Again (and im not getting board of saying this) Tom Saunders was first back for Soders in 8th place and the time 23:22, Matt Norris was next in 12th place with 24:25 and in 13th was Chris Britten with 24:32.
Wayne Williams was competing in the Tockington duathalon where he took 4th place. Quote from their website: ‘The men's race was probably our best ever in terms of quality, with four athletes breaking the 40 minute barrier. First place went to Adam Whittaker who smashed the previous course record by more than 40 seconds, finishing in 36:33. Chris Mills came second in 38:38 while only 6 seconds separated third and fourth place - Robert Sims (39:13) and Wayne Williams (39:19).’Wayne is said to be fuming with the result and is considering retirement.
