Reg Pearce Memorial Race
Thank you all for taking part in the Reg Pearce Memorial race and we hope you had a good ride and enjoyed the course and atmosphere in the HQ afterward.
There were some exceptional performances in this year’s event held on a challenging 10 mile out and back course with a couple of punishing ascents and a grippy first and last 2 miles. Conditions on the day were good but not perfect, mild and dry with a light south-westerly wind.
Emily Meakin (AWOL O’Shea Worx) was the first to ‘shine’ setting a new women’s course record with a time of 21:13. Then Ashley Cox (Team Botrill) set a new Men’s’ Open course record of 19:13. Another performance of note, which there were many, was Callum Twelves (Team Ohten Aveas) who as a junior on restricted gears finished in a time of 20:54, 3rd fastest overall! Kate Pilling (Ful-on Tri) in her first ever TT won the women’s road bike event and Tomas Mason(Brixton Cycles Club) who was a long way from home won the men’s RB event. Tim Hood (Team Botrill) was fastest Vet and 4th overall fastest showing that age is no limiting factor.
