THIS WEEK IN RIDES
Our A fields both saw new names pop up this week! On the women's side, Jennifer Ward finally opened her account, having won the overall in the first two KOMpetitions (if memory serves!) She was just 7 seconds shy of Laura aka The Squaremeat's QOM time on Davies (and 7th overall in our entire group!), but she had burned all her matches on that one, and had a slower time on the other. K :) was also out this week, and got 3rd on Davies, and 2nd on Petworth. And it goes without saying Laura claimed the QOM there as well! In the overall 1st and 2nd are locked up, but 3rd place could still go to any of our contenders!
Stephane Tran was fastest on Petworth this week, but Julian held on to claim Davies, with these pushing those times higher and higher, what a battle! They got 2nd each otherwise, and it's good to see Louis is back, collecting 3rd place points.
Laura was the lone B out this week, and of course top points go to her! Hopefully more of the B ladies turn up for the last two weeks!
Over with the guys, Colin is proving himself to being more of an 'A' rider than a 'B', just a few seconds behind Louis, and a bigger gap to the Bs chasing him! So he collected top points, but on Petworth Tyler V and Travis F climbed onto the podium, and Travis moved up a notch on Davies, and Glennon had a terrific ride and took 3rd there, with Tyler V and Adam tied a second back from that in fourth, so close!
Travis had the distinction of being the only rider to post the same time for both segments (I think...I find those stats kind of amusing.😂)
There was upset this week as Kathy M claimed both top spots in the C's!! Suzy claimed second on both as well, with Heidi also sharing the podium.
There was upset with the guys as well, as Juan knocked over Kit's apple cart, and earned top spot! Kit took 2nd and 3rd as well, and Tyler G got himself 3rd on Petworth, and Rafael popped in for 3rd on Davies.
Nice riding all!!
BONUSES & CURSES
As mentioned the QOMs went to Laura, and the KOMs remained unrenewed.
Early bird was Dave B, but this seems to be the season with no Secret Times! And no Socialite points awarded as well. The Local Legend curse hit was claimed by Julian, and somehow Travis F managed to avoid it, I'm assuming his earlier rides timed out.
