Congratulations to Tom Rigby, Springfield Financial RT, and Debbie Moss, Chorley CC, our 2017 NLTTA 25 champions. This makes a hat trick for Tom with the 10 and 100 already in the bag and a double for Debbie with the 100 won a few weeks ago.
Tom set a new course record in the process with a speedy 52:36 on a testing course. Steve Irwin also beat the previous record to take second in 53:36. Richard Bickley, from the promoting club Border City Whs, took third place in 55:05.
Debbie was a convincing winner in the ladies competition with 1:04:31. Second place Katie Lukas, Beacon Whs, finished in 1:6:14 and the final podium spot was taken by Charlotte Gorman, Team Lusso, in 1:6:47.
The team champions are the Border City Whs trio of Richard Bickley, Patrick Pennefather (58:03) and Richard Anderson (59.34).
Well done to all riders and thanks to Carol Westmorland and the Border City Whs team for hosting the NLTTA championship 25.
Both were making their 100 debuts and recorded fantastic times of 3:52:57 and 4:37:01, respectively, in the Manchester&DTTA event on the J4/18.
Well done to all NLTTA riders
Thanks to Ellen Isherwood for the pics
