The shortened course from last year remained for the 51st year edition of this local classic. An incredible 9 first claim and 2 second claim members were down on the start sheet, unfortunately on the day Paul Delicata and Peter Harber had to send their apologies due to illness. Bright weather with much lighter winds than the previous day is what greeted all those that did start. As the event went on the temperature also began to rise. The placing were as follows:
15th Mark Newton (2nd claim) - 1.06.27
20th Peter Mahoney - 1.07.19 New TT bike paying dividends as we have all been telling him for a few years!
36th - Richard Birtwhistle - 1.10.56 Believe he had a late start.
45th Richard Hill - 1.12.29
46th David Twin - 1.13.00
53rd Robert Royston - 1.16.02 Had a cap from his tri-bar snap early on, which resulted in having to ride in the saddle all the way round holding one bar to the other in a mono bar set-up.
65th Ed Rieu - 1.20.01
72nd Gary Smith - 1.33.32 Had late start and was also suffering from running 16 miles the previous day as part of his marathon training.
73rd Bob Loader - 1.36.10 First outing on new TT bike.
The overall winner was Chris McMamara Pedal Heaven in a time of 1.00.16.
