Howdy folks.

Sorry I didn't get the TT results out last week.  Sometimes life gets away on you.

Great work by those that did the TT last week.  Even though it seemed quite still at the start line there was a definite breeze blowing (isn't there always?).  Mike Proudfoot showed us his form by taking out the event comfortably (even though if the TT doesn't hurt you haven't done it right) from a great ride by Peter Wilkinson who showed that sprinters can also TT...     The handicaps were half of the time of the regular bunch handicaps from the other events on this course.   This saw Dianna Borman take out the event on handicap with Ian Fraser and Howard Davies rounding out the top 3 spots.

You can see the results of the TT HERE.

And this week was overcast, a bit rainy and subsequently, there was a small field.  But it was a good event nonetheless.   Great to see the hard-working bunch of Ian Fraser, Lisa Horne and Dianna Borman working hard to stay away from the bigger chasing bunch.   And nice work by Peter Wilkinson who showed his younger colleagues the ins an outs of sprinting :)

The results of Event four are HERE.

So I've plugged this into the overall points and this makes for some interesting opportunities in next week's finale up the Maungakotukutuku Hill.   Dianna Borman would look to have the top women's spot sewn up but 2nd and 3rd is a closely fought thing.   And the men's points are all up for grabs with Ian Fraser holding a good lead but a group of guys not too far behind him.

See the overall points HERE.

Thanks as always to the management, course set up and marshals for the hard work put in.  I'd like to also say a huge public thanks to Tristan Ratcliffe who's blood has been worth bottling this year.  Tristan has done the course set up and take down for all the summer series events and managed a couple of the races as well.  Massive massive thanks.

The Hill Climb up the Maungakotukutuku Hill next week is the last race of the series and the last Tuesday night race for the year and is also race two of the Hill Climb Series.   We are adding to the course a bit this year with the start being back down Valley Road at the Cemetary.  This will give you a good lead-in to the hill.

I would love there to be a good turn out for the final event.

Regards
