KCC Evening TT - Flags to Old
28/08/2014

The final event in this year's evening series was a short sprint from the memorial on the airfield straight to the usual finish on the outskirts of Old. 26 riders fancied having a go at the prologue-type event and many discovered that pacing is just as important as ever. Mark Weathersby continued his fine end to the season to take the win in 8:25, 8 seconds ahead of series runner-up David Robinson. Neill Hammond, Eddy Clutton and Jon Thorne all went under 9 minutes and finished in that order to complete the top five. Matt Tyrrell was 10 second ahead of a 3-way tie for 7th and Gemma Royles came home 10th to take the scalps of Mark Booth and Mark Evans, who had opted for road bikes. Stu Walters put in a rare appearance and showed a few of the juniors the way home with only Jonah Shrive and Morgan Lewis managing to sneak ahead of the, errr... more experienced rider.

KCC Evening TT - Old
21/08/2014

The penultimate TT of the season and the last on the Old circuit saw Tony Brown take the win at the head of a large field and, in doing so, secure an unassailable lead in the points series. David Robinson, the only rider in with a chance of catching the recently crowned British Triathlon champion in the 55-59 age group, could only finish third behind second placed Mark Weathersby. Paul Ashdown continued his comeback with another solid performance to finish fourth, a second ahead of Eddy Clutton, who is seeing the benefits of some high mileage over recent months and a substantial investment in new kit. Mark Booth suffered a puncture on the way to the start but borrowed a wheel from the early starting David Robinson and recovered to finish sixth.

Gemma Royles slipped back to her usual time in the less favourable conditions but was still the fastest lady and was looking good for an overall win in the Tollers Solicitors League until Jen Moffat put in her customary late appearance. Her second place was enough to secure the overall win by 10 points having competed in 1 extra event.

With the end of the season rapidly approaching, Mark Weathersby brought out his TT bike for its long awaited debut and recorded his first victory in an almost identical time to the week before. David Robinson took second place in his first event back after his charity ride through France, and Paul Ashdown dipped under 23 minutes to take third.

KCC Evening TT - Old
07/08/2014

Favourable conditions resulted in a number of personal bests in the latest round of the TT series to be held on the Old circuit. Chris Duckworth, whose form is erratic to say the least, had a good day and dropped his PB by 18 seconds to take the win. Mark Weathersby produced his best time to finish second, and James Simons-Boswell took third with his fastest time on the course. Neill Hammond was the fourth rider to produce a PB in the top four but the run was spoiled by Tony Brown who came home fifth complaining bitterly about slow moving farm machinery! Gemma Royles climbed off the plateau she had been stuck on and dropped her PB by over half a minute. George Evans went faster by over a minute as he successfully kept his father and minute man behind him.
