An overcast, chilly, blustery evening saw nine riders turn out for the last Wheelers-run TT of the season on the F20/10 course (Hertford to Turnford and back). The temperature and the crosswind were doing nobody any favours and everyone finished the event a little dissatisfied with their time. The first place on the Herts Wheelers podium was taken by Yiannis Gopoulos with Claire Gopoulos taking second and settling a score with the course on which she had missed the turn in the previous race. Third place was filled by occasional time-trialler Graham Knight taking a break from time-keeping duties to ride his bike. Peter Walton and Ian Bembridge filled the last two Wheelers slots.
The private entries put in good times but, as with our own riders, these were all below their best. Sam Brown led them home in 19:08. Bad luck award of the evening must go to privateer Jonny Allen who discovered while waiting at the start that he had a puncture and had to withdraw from the race. Having gone to the trouble of preparing and coming to the event he replaced the tube and rode the course anyway. Unfortunately too late to be officially timed and included in the results.
Thanks to Lee for the signs, Graham for admin and Peter for timing.
