Midlands VTTA K33/25 TT sponsored by Echelon Cycles August 22 2015

A sunny afternoon produced some very fast times, as well as a few incidents, which unfortunately clouded the day. On actual fastest it was another fine win for Jon Simpkins www.drag2zero.com (51.48) chased by Tom Ward, Team Echelon Rotor (52.06) and Stephen Vanes, Wyre Forest CRC (53.14). On standard, first prize went to Richard Coleman (+13.24) with Karl Moseley (+13.15) in second (both representing Stourbridge Velo) and Annis Moore (13.05), from Walsall Roads CC in third. 

Once again riders would like to thank Echelon Cycles and Tim Wood (fourth overall with 54.47) for their continued sponsorship. Many thanks to the officials, Bob Franks, Charlie Barnett and Steve Lockwood and catering team Jan and Daphne,  VTTA Committee members and their wives, and other friends for generously giving their time to ensure an enjoyable event, and thanks in particular to the Midlands Group Chairman, Andrew Simpkins who organised the event. 

Despite best efforts, this was not an uneventful event and due to the serious incidents that occured during the event, the Chairman has since reminded all rides of the importance of riding safely and considerately, not just for their own safety as well as other road users, but also to ensure there are no grounds for complaints from anyone, which may jeopardise the future of races on the open road. After much discussion with the Committee, it has been decided to run this race on a Sunday morning instead of a Saturday afternoon next year.
