The third round of the Kalas South West Women’s race series was the Camel Valley CTC 10MTT held on a windy S6 course in Cornwall. The rain held off and the sun even made an appearance as 6 women took the start for the 2nd TT round. The course proved challenging with a blustery wind proving a bit of a problem on the course along the Ladock valley.
Ayse Vahiboglu, Exeter Wheelers was fastest in 24:30 with Zoe Betteridge, North Devon Wheelers Southfork 2nd in 25:26 and Mary Macfadzean, Revo Racing 3rd in 25:55. Other finishers were Weibke Reitz 1st Chard Wheelers 26:37, Josephine Gilbert, V C St Raphael 27:36, and Liz Hill Alltrax 29:40. The latter two rides done on road bikes.
Post-race there was the usual socialising with tea and an excellent selection of cakes. The Victoria sponge went down particularly well with Zoe. A very friendly prize presentation followed, as evidenced by the very sincere hug for the winner!
Thanks to Camel Valley CTC for promoting another excellent event and to Kalas for providing prizes for the Series
