Huddersfield Star Wheelers has a long history of being a club that promotes and organises cycling race events. These events often ‘sell out’ and the club is recognised regionally for hosting well managed and safe events that attract some of the best riders in the region. Sunday’s 10 mile Time Trial on the cryptically named V915 course continued that tradition, and thanks again go to Matt Bourne for organising a fantastic event.
Cool early conditions with a slight wind from the south meant it was a day for some good times from the assembled riders, who ranged from complete novices to seasoned specialists, on compact road bikes to full aero machines. Rider feedback was excellent and many commented on how safe the course was with the support of the many marshals, the number of people out supporting the race, and thanks go to the timers and starter.
The overall winner was Alistair Wareham of Team Swift at 21m 53s. Alisa Healy of The Racing Chance Foundation was first woman at 28m 44s. Nathan Allatt of RN&RM Cycling Association was first 23 and under at 22m 54s. Peter Holdsworth of HD Revolutions was first 24 to 39 at 23m 44s. Julian Ramsbottom of Pedal Pushers was the first 40 and over at 22m 58s.
Congratulations go to the winners and to everyone who took part on the day and raced. Special thanks go to the marshals who gave up their time to keep the riders safe, and to everyone who came along to support our fantastic club.
The heritage continues…….
