Leagues within the league: results after race 3

In the 18-39 cat, Terry Ottaway maintained his lead, despite some drama on the start line (when he was faffing around with Strava on his phone). He then hit the ground with his pedal on a turn, and did well to stay upright. Simon Brooke is making it a real scrap for 2nd with Geoff Watson, following Chris Burn’s absence.

At the top of the 40-55s it is still very tight. The category was won by Rick Mitford while current Michael Openshaw marshalled. This one is going to go to the wire with the two separated by only one point. New member Lee Ridden is threatening, should either of them slip up (you’ve heard of punctures on TT courses!), while Mike, Mark and Rob are still within shouting distance (presumably after they’ve got their breath back after racing!). New entrant Chris Herbert made an immediate impact with his long 23, while both Lee and Mark Ridden are keeping the pressure on the top men.
