28 Riders turned up from 38 sign ups to brave the less than favourable conditions. The P337 course record was smashed by James Boyman of Hoops Velo, with a very impressive time of 22m 05s on our sporting course. Our hearts went out to Michelle Walter of Bournemouth Arrows, as she suffered a puncture just before the start, but didn’t give in and took the late start penalty to still compete! The Tornado would like to thank Sunday Club Clothing for supporting the event and for Estrella Bikesdisplaying some of their awesome machinery.
National TT Thruxton 15th OctoberTwo Tornado’s go sub 30 minutes
Two Tornado's reported at Thruxton race circuit this morning, for the RTTC National TT event. The back section of the circuit was unpleasant with quite a headwind, which got worse by the lap! Mission accomplished for sub 30 minutes of the 11.4 mile course. Adrian Watkins beat his previous best with an official time of 29m 56s and Richard Wyeth with a time of 28m 36s. We certainly weren't last on the lists, out of all participants (270, with 3 DNF's) Adi was 191st and Rich 159th. A brilliant job all round.
