TDH 2018 Results
Great weather greeted the riders for the Tour De Huntley. My inability to sort the timing system out meant I was timing old school with a stopwatch – Phone. After the TT we had to wait 30min to put the TC signs out at Marshall Mount, that gave Peter Amos and I time to work out the calculations. Danny Hennersey gave us a run down history of how the TDH was conceived back in the day so that we had an understanding of the time deductions as some of us were unaware.
The road race set off with riders attacking each other in all grades to try to get the time bonuses on offer. As you will see from the results it made for close finishing time overall, with some people (Luigi) miss calculating their times!
Merrick Law picked up heap of time bonuses beating Luke Meers by 2 seconds in A grade and Tony Leslie edging out Luigi Palermo by 3 seconds.
This race format makes for aggressive racing and plenty of tactics shown in the road race.
Thanks to my TC’s ;
Dave Raymond, Peter Amos, George Galvin, Kym Daly.
