There was a great turn out for today’s Island Games fundraising event.
73 riders contested the 25 mile team time trial in near perfect conditions.
Unusually for this type of event, all teams managed to finish - with some fast times! The dry, sunny weather with a light breeze probably accounted for this but please note that 'The Management' cannot guarantee these conditions for any future events!
The event was won by Robin Garry, Ed Perry and Tom Mazzone with a time of 51:27. Runners up were the team of Owen Dudley, Gary Johnston and Mark Harrison with a time of 54:55. And finishing the podium in 3rd place were the trio of young riders Jimmy Bostock, Adam Kelly and Tosh Teare in a time of 55:21 (this was an excellent time considering the 3 boys had to dismount and wait whilst a traffic snarl up on the course was cleared!).
Thanks to all who entered the Bikestyle raffle after the event, with all proceeds also put towards the 2017 Island Games. A very fine display of cakes also vanished particularly quickly, with many commenting how enjoyable they were.
As usual, a massive thank you to all the organisers and helpers who make events like this possible.
