BRIDESTOWE CLUB 10 TIME TRIAL 22-07-2014
Nine out of the thirteen riders who competed in last night’s event achieved new Personal Bests. Another record? Conditions were good, with the evening air a little cooler than earlier on in the heat of the day. Gavin MacDougall achieved his season’s goal by beating the 24 minute barrier by seven seconds, and securing first place in the process. The results overall speak for themselves. A great effort. Thanks again to Geoff, Peter, Ian, Nigel, Mike and Jacky for their help.

OKCC CLUB TIME TRIAL 15-07-2014
A fine evening with good riding conditions gave the field of fifteen riders a chance to produce fast times. Four improved on personal bests. Gavin MacDougall stormed home in first place again this week with a new PB, closely followed by Lee Adams ten seconds behind. (Lee still holds this years fastest time of 24:11). A special mention for Matt Walker. This was his first attempt on the course which was unfamiliar to him. He crossed the line in 34:16. Dee Richards clocked the fastest time for the ladies.
Thanks again to Peter and Ian for time keeping, to Geoff and Mike for marshalling the turn, and of course to everyone who turned up to race.

The Okehampton Sports week “come and try” combined with our club event, together with a reasonable evening’s weather without showers attracted a large field of 26 riders including 14 who were new to the course.
Gavin MacDougall continued his winning streak and comfortably achieved overall first place, and the overall winners medal awarded by Ocra Sport.. Liz Vernon was the fastest lady with a new PB. Jordan Channon and James Powell also achieved new PBs. The fastest new rider was Adam Nelson who crossed the finish line in an excellent time for a first attempt on the course of 29:06, winning the OCRA fastest newcomers medal, closely followed by Dom Plumb in 29:39. The medal for the fastest junior under 16 went to Harry Bryant. Well done to all first time riders.
Thank you to everyone who turned up to compete on what is a hard 10 mile circuit. Special thanks to Ian and Peter for time keeping, to Mike and Garry for marshalling the turn, to Nigel for photographing everyone, and to Geoff of Tavy Whs, and to Stuart Lord of OCRA for their efforts in persuading new riders to come along and for publicising the event so successfully.
