SNCC riders TT roundup

9th August 2017

It has been another busy couple of weeks for the for the time trialists in the club. The main event was the Interclub 10-mile TT held at Marston Moretaine. The Interclub competition is a series of 5 TTs held throughout the year in which St Neots CC, Beds Road Club, Icknield Road Club, CC Ashwell and Hitchin Nomads compete. The fastest 8 riders from each club earn points, and the club with the most points at the end of the series wins overall.

We only had 6 riders compete out of a field of 60+, but everyone put in a fantastic effort and achieved excellent placings, plus some much needed points!

Sam McDonald: 22:17 – 2nd place

Keith Barton: 22:41 – 5th place

Pat Ellerbeck: 23:28 – 9th place

Chris Green and Mark Greenhow: 24:37 – joint 15th place

Dave Wilson: 26:52 – 30th place

The riders were busy away from the Interclub competition too, with Pat Ellerbeck riding two 25-mile TTs in 2 weeks in 57:05 and 58:40 – his third and fourth sub-hour 25-mile TTs in as many weeks! Mark Greenhow set a new 10-mile PB of 21:29 on the Cambourne course, and Chris Green and Dave Wilson took part in the Bicester Millenium CC 10-mile TT, posting good times of 24:40 and 26:35, respectively.

The last Interclub TT of the year is a hill climb on 8th October, and it would be fantastic to get as many riders competing as possible. Being a hill climb you don't need any fancy aero gear, just your normal bike and jersey. It's great fun, and there is always a great selection of cakes to choose from at the HQ afterwards!
