Ben Seddon wins the Thew Cup!
Ben Seddon, Thew Cup Winner
Rain and wind was the reward for those riders who competed in event 5 of the Beech House Dental Practice TT league last week. The course was the ten mile out and back from Dishforth to Roecliffe and reigning champion and winner of the first four events Duncan Mullier was missing an event due to illness for the first time in four years. There were no surprises as to the winner however, as runner up from the first four events, Prologue’s Dylan Flesher, stepped up to the top step in a junior record time 23:16, 41 seconds ahead of Nova’s Dave Morris, with clubmate Roger Bromiley on the podium for the first time with 24:29. The women’s event was won again by Nova’s Corinne Mitchell in yet another lady veteran record time of 25:55, a time that would put her sixth in the men’s event. The Thew Cup, presented to the winner of the event on handicap was won by the improving Ben Seddon.
New Junior record by winner Dylan Flesher
Corinne Mitchell in the records again too.
The ever improving Harry Wrightson showing the importance of visible footwear in poor light.
In open Time Trials Nova’s Ele Haresign was second in the Holm Valley Wheelers 25 mile TT wth 1:02:00, behind York Cycleworks rider Jess Bacon (1:00:31). At the Yorkshire Cycling Federation 10 mile TT on Humberside Nova’s Tony Kent and Walter Wilkinson amazingly recorded the same time of 23:14 with Aidan Adams 23:20 and John Tiffany 26:20.
Sorry about the poor quality of the pictures but it really was very dark.
