Mini series 5 results

After an excellent evening’s racing last Thursday, the tables have changed slightly. Don’t forget it is the best of 6 races plus you can opt to marshall and get max points. Dean Penfold pipped Michael Openshaw by a mere second with Michael Sloanes a commendable third.

11 June results

In the 18-39s section Chris Burns’ absence allows both Dave Sparrow and Michael Sloanes to leapfrog him (and Kris Adlington and Terry Ottaway snapping at his heels), but remember that it is the best 6 races that count, and Chris has not yet marshalled. Dean Penfold continues a steady rise up the table, as does Joe Shacklady.

18-39 overall R5

In the 40-55s Michael Openshaw opens up a 5-point gap to Lee Ridden, with Stuart Cook moving up to a podium place at the expense of Richard Barnett (who was preparing for an incredible Audax 600k/387 mile event at the weekend). Mal Grey pops up to 5th with the rest under 100 points.

40-55 overall R5

Rick Mitford looks to have the 56+ league done and dusted with a series PB of 21:59. Tom Guy was unfortunate not to finish in round 4 but bounces back this week with a series-best of 22:39. Great to see our own Nick Jobson testing again after injury, with a very respectable 26:12. Dave Burns (snr) still maintains his second spot on the podium, despite Tom Guy’s efforts.

56+ overall R5

Ingrid Shepherd maintains her grip on the Ladies’ with Lesley and Sandy not competing in Round 5. Angela Fusco leapfrogs Jill Howarth with her marshalling points (both girls have now marshalled).


Overall, Michael Openshaw has made a bit of space from the chasing pack, but we will have a better picture after next week’s race (because it is the best of 6).




Just a couple of points:

  • When you sign to race, you must abide by the rules of the road. From the CTT’s own website, competitors must:(a) not ride in a manner that is unsafe either to themselves or to other road users

    (b) ride on the left-hand side of the road except for safe overtaking and when making right hand turns

  • This is only a club event, so don’t take unnecessary risks. Our circuit is constantly under review and, to my knowledge, none of us are professionals. Thank you. Peter Scott.
