Harry Wrightson Strikes Silver


Harry Wrightson Jowett Cup winner.

The Timetriallist yearns for the perfect weather on the perfect course, the fabled “float” day. Competitors in the Beech House Dental Practice TT league would have to wait for their float day as roadworks meant yet another change of course and that meant the club 25 mile TT gave competitors two chances to enjoy the nagging headwind on the draggy and exposed section of the A168 between Boroughbridge and Dishforth. Nova’s improving youngster Harry Wrightson took his first piece of silverware by winning the Jowett Cup on Handicap with yet another win in Most Improved Rider Competition with 1:06:35, an astonishing improvement of almost 12 minutes! With five wins in the Most Improved competition it looks like Harry can expect some more silverware at the end of the season. In the men’s competition Duncan Mullier made it six wins in the series with 56:29, 2:32 ahead of second place Dave Morris and 3:31 ahead of third place Roger Bromiley who scored the perfect hour (1:00:00). The women’s event was won by Corinne Mitchell for her fifth win in 1:04:49. Next week the riders take a break unless they choose to compete in Nova’s Summer Cyclocross. The previous weekend it was “float” conditions for the Adept Precision 25 on the A19 near Thirsk where Nova’s Alison Sarmiento agonisingly missed out on breaking the hour by 22 seconds with 1:00:21.


The calm before the headwind.



Come on Dave this is serious.


That’s more like it Walter B.
