Sun, wind, rain and hail dominate TT's

Time Trial racing catch up....
The weather played a massive part in this weekends 'race against the clock'.
Adrian Killworth contested the VC Long Eaton Hilly 25 mile TT on a rolling course in North West Leicestershire. Adrian recorded 1hr 6 minutes 1sec in his first 25 tt of the season.

Torrential rain and hail caused chaos in the prestigious Dianne Cook Memorial 10 Mile TT at Wolvey. 
The event attracts an excellent entry with the women's event taking centre stage after a support event for males. 
With over 170 competitors the 'bush' course proves very popular. Chris Parr & Steve Boat battled strong winds & driving hail to record times of 25.05 & 25.27. By the time it was Dave Birch's time to start ice from the hail had formed at the side of the road, and thick mist descended, Dave took a rare but sensible decision not to start. 
The women's event due to start after the men's event was delayed by 30mins due to the conditions, then cancelled as the roads were flooded denying both Linda Hubbard & Claire Waterfield the chance to race.

Mixed weekend for bunch racers

Michael Burke maintained his good form finishing 5th in the Prologue Circuit Series near Dishforth after 40kms.

In stage 2 of the Rockingham Forest Whs 2 day Phil Rayner sprinted to 5th before today's eventful stage.

During stage 3 Phil suffered a crash 
A touch of wheels at the head of pack saw Phil land heavily on his shoulder and suffered concussion. 
Teammate Simon Hopkins was also involved, he was catapulted into the grass verge suffering bumps and bruises.

Amy Garner mastered the corners and speed humps round the Loughborough University Campus to finish a strong 4th lady and 1st Junior after 30kms
