The discounted entry fee or the possibility of getting a gold medal ensured a course record of 32 riders signed up for the 2nd Annual (and newly named) Interclub 10m TT competition. Clubs represented included the hosts North Norfolk Wheelers with East Coast Riders, Tri Harder and Tri Harman and a scattering of other clubs.
Conditions were not bad with a cool cross tail wind out and cross head wind back, although the light was fading as the last riders set off (with their rear lights flashing!). Traffic was busy but started to subside at Fakenham with the last of the day trippers heading home, although a few riders got caught in a bit of traffic near the Shell roundabout (sorry Connor!).
North Norfolk Wheelers Kim Morrison blasted into first place with 21.31, followed by Aiden Bond (22.00) second and Mike Padfield (22.17) third.
Fastest veteran male on VTTA handicap time was Nigel Walsh (NNW) with a seasons best time of 23.53, with fastest veteran female Susie Towning (TriHarman). Fastest on road bikes were John Morgan (Tri Harder) and Amanda Marshall (TriHarman). Fastest two-up where the dynamic duo of Matthew Whittaker and Peter Farrell (ECR).
Apologies to Sarah Jay who I announced had won her veteran female category only to be replaced at the last minute by Susie Towning (following a short stewards enquiry). However Sarah did win the club handicap time (and I gave her a spare medal!).
It was good to see some new people to time-trialling with at least two new riders from Tri Harder on their maiden time trials and looking to do some more in the future.
Thanks to the marshals and timekeepers; David Carrier, John Chambers and Geoff Paice who did a great job in tricky conditions.
