WSJCC Club Time Trial Results – Severn Stoke 10 – 15 May 2018

The sunny weather brought out 41 riders for this evenings time trial at Severn Stoke on K46/10. What appeared to be a nice evening had a sting in the tail though as the wind started to pick up during sign on, this meant a headwind for the return leg back up from the M50 roundabout.

Simon Garrett takes the win with a time of 21 minutes 58 seconds, just 5 seconds ahead of Mark Corbett (22 minutes 3 Seconds), with Kevin Lane from Success Cycling rounding off the top 3 with 22 minutes 46 seconds.

Overall fast times despite the wind, with the top ten all sub 24 minutes and separated by just 100 seconds.

Oce again thanks to the helpers.

Full results from the event can be found on the time trial results page.
