TLI Cycling TT Championships Results 2019 hosted by Stafford Road Club

Congratulations to all the riders who took part in the TLI Cycling National TT Championships on Sunday as they all produced fabulous times on a very demanding 22.2 mile course in North Staffordshire. This was road bikes only and just goes to prove that if you have got the legs you do not need lots of aero equipment to produce incredible times. Riders were lucky to have a dry sunny morning with a gentle breeze that began to build as the event went on.
Fastest rider on the day was Steven Fidler (3C Payment Sport) who finished in a time of 50:53 with an average speed of 26.2mph which is impressive on such a hilly course, shown in photo below.   Special mention has to go to Samuel Hall (Velo Runner RT) who at the age of just 16 finished in a time of 55:12.

K7/25 TT Sunday 1st Sept – Course Change

Due to temporary traffic lights along the course at Dunston we are having to move Sunday’s TT to the K7/21 course from Castlebank along the A518. The start time will remain the same at 8:30am

Any riders planning to drive to the start please use either lay-by just up the road from the start.

Cancelled – Wednesday 28th August K7/5 TT

Having looked at the weather radar for the K7/5 @ portal pool tonight, it looks like it will rain from 4pm through to at least 6:30 (which is the start time). With a period of heavy rain.

Therefore I have decided to cancel tonight’s event due to possible safety concerns with standing water, and obviously bikes traveling at 30mph.  I am sorry it’s late notice, but I tried to leave it as long as possible to decide. Rider safety is always of the highest importance.

There is a 25mile TT on Sunday if you would like to race this weekend.

Change of TT Course – Wednesday 14th August

The plan is to keep the start time at 6:45pm but may be pushed back to 7pm if necessary.

The event details are below and also the volunteers page for location info:
