...a3crg Mid-Week Summer Series ~ Event One
The first of the "Mid-Week" open summer series run by ...a3crg got underway Greatham on Wednesday evening attracting a rather competitive field. Writes Dave Collard-Berry Being one of the summers first warm evenings there was quite a buzz in the air & that wasn't the midges. For this season ...a3crg are splitting some of the events into separate men's & women's events so that both events attract equal "National Ranking Points", of course we all know that riders aren't interested in "ranking points" except those who are on the first sheet!
However the women's did attract a very good field & Birthday girl Faye Faber (NOPINZ) took the top spot with a 21:15 pushing out scratch girl Jennifer George (Torelli) by 24 seconds. Of course the turn of speed by the birthday girl was really all about making sure she was back in good time to catch the ferry back to the Island. In third place was Uckfield teacher & former WTA Tennis player Sally Turner (Trainsharp) being the third rider to post a sub-22 time. Fourth place & first Junior was Caitlin Peters (Storey Racing) with 22:25.

To really get the Summer Series underway the "Men's Event" provided half a dozen sub-20's with Kevin Tye (VeloRefined Aerosmiths) claiming the top spot with a 19:32. Just three seconds behind was Chris Holmes (Twickenham CC) & 10 seconds down on was Winchester rider Nick Tarmey (VC Venta). In fact only 23 seconds separated 6th Place Nick Dwyer (Lewes Wanderers CC) from the top spot.

One of the main challengers Mark Smith (Crawley Wheeler) punctured just past the fuel station at the top of the hill, funny how it's never at the bottom of a hill! But one of the biggest smiles of the evening came from Simon Smart the DRAG2ZERO maestro who knocked over a minute of his "PB", that aero stuff must work then, just need the right course. Fastest Team was Blazing Saddles with the young James Mapley leading home his much older team mates Howard Bailey & Andy Langdown.
