Well for the first time on the course I have to say this was a very dissapointing turnout, 4 club riders and a guest on a racing penny-farthing!
A huge thank you to everyone that turned out tonight, riders and support team and observers.
Evan Hsu took the win tonight, by 1 second from Fabos Young and with it the inaugral course record.
Well done to everyone who participated and thank you for your support.

It was a good evening for a TT, temperature was okay, roads were dry and very little wind. A good turnout and 23 riders took part.
There was a minor incident for one rider who was brought down by a car turning straight across his path even though they saw him, fortunately no major damage to anyone. But the accident report forms still need to be completed! Some really good results and I'm sure some PB's were set, Charlotte with a 2m 19s improvement! I will update as soon as I can get all the information together. Well done to fastest 45RC rider Neville on his return to the bars and to the fastest time overall to Tom on his time. The course record for this route was set by Liam Stones on the 14th April 2015 at 21:38.

Whiston Hilly 28th March 2017. After a fairly windless day the start of the event we were reminded that it is still March by the brisk and chilly wind that appeared from no where! Also in a less than helpful direction. So 2 riders with less than their expected times due to going off course, must be something about this one that people still manage to go wrong...even with the route map.

Well what dreary and dismall day weather wise. 10 brave and hardy souls turned up the for the first event in the 25 round series, it was wet, very wet, raining but not really cold, unless of course you were wet! Chapeaux to all the riders taking part and thanks to Tom, Zak and Simon for the event support. Fastest time on the day was by ex 45RC club member, George Fox, who missed out on the outright course record by 21secs which considering the state of the roads and the rain, was a superb effort, well done George. So the 2017 series leader board has now opened.......

Footnote: some riders still need learn to get to the line at least 1 minute before their start times and at least one needed to check the course map before riding, it helps the organisers and yourselves....
