Derwentside 40 Mountain TT

Veteran member Rick Mitford had a great ride in the Derwentside 40 Mountain TT on Sunday 27 May. With a storming 2:07:54 on a hilly course in hot weather, he was placed first in the V50 category. This follows his strong showing in the recent Tyne Vagabonds Mountain Time Trial, placing second in the 50+ category. The Vags race was made extremely difficult by high winds.

Fellow members Malcolm Marshall, chairman Mike Wyngard and Paul Tyler also posted impressive times, Paul riding the event in tribute to his late wife Debbie Hales.
