...3crg Open 10,19/07/17 Report/Results

Groupie Night report

Talk about having faith, thunderstorms the night before, constant drizzle (rain and riders) all through the morning, you did wonder if there would be an event Wednesday evening in Liphook. But the forecast said the sun would breakout around 18:00. We had the faith and we kept telling riders that was the forecast, as the first of the signs were being put out there still was very damp air but as you moved down the course the wind got up a little and at 17:45 almost on cue at West Liss the sun appeared, yes an event can go ahead & it was Groupie Night

The riders also it turned out had the "faith" with only six riders not being able to make signing-on, the lowest in the Wednesday Series. Quite a few riders struggled with the wind; whoever you talked to had a different opinion where it was coming from, so you had to consider was it tired legs rather than the blustery excuses.

John Dewey made his first appearance in the series and posted a winning 18:37 time on the P881r while Gary Chambers equalled his time from the previous week (P881) with an 18:44 with Pat Wright being the third rider to post a sub nineteen ride with an 18:59. The fastest of the "South DC riders was the promoting teams rider Charlie Mitchell improving his ten time to 19:38 but only giving him 8th place! Tenth place was Tom Pritchard (Hants Road Club) with a 19:57 7 the last of the sub-20 rides, just where are these rides coming from?

As for the girls, Rachael Elliott (Drag2Zero) tied in fifteen place with John Samways with a 20:32, so did Samways escaped being chicked? There were plenty of guys who were. Angela Carpenter (...a3crg) was the second fastest woman in 21:58 and ex Olympic rower Elise Sherwell (Blazing Saddles) 3rd fastest 22:25. Making a return to time trialling after a few absence years was former National 100 Champion Jenny Simmonds (Lloyd-Jones) 22:57.

The riders were split into six groups and the minimalistic prizes went to first and second places, hence the title of the event, "Groupie Night".
