Midlands Women’s TT Series 2013 Event 7: Shirley RC 10mTT

Trek Bicycle - CoventryThe final event in the 2013 Midlands women’s TT series was a 10mTT on the K36/10 in Hockley Heath, a change from last year’s course (the K1/10) due to roadworks. A breezy summer’s evening saw eight women line up for the event (one of whom, Sarah Coleman, is not in the series, but we hope she will be persuaded to take part next year!). The K36/10 has not previously been used in the women’s series and proved to be fairly hard going, at least for your author.

Helen Boatman (Team Milton Keynes) won the event in 24.34. As has often been the case this year, second to fifth places were closely contested, with Susan Semple, Annis Moore (Stafford RC), Suzy Patience and Fay Barrington of Banbury Star CC finishing with just 20 seconds separating them. Sue came in second in 25.21, Annis in third in 25.25, Suzy in fourth in 25.31 and Fay in fifth in 25.41.

Unfortunately, Helen had to dash off back to London immediately after the race, so we haven’t got a picture of first, second and third, but we did manage to catch Susan Semple & Annis MooreSue (right) and Annis (left) at the end of the event. There are more pictures from the event, taken by Alistair Semple, on the Stafford RC flickr site.
Anna Wordsworth (Warwick University Triathlon and RCC) managed to prevail in her ongoing battle with Karen Riley of BRAT, beating her by a mere 8 seconds this time around.

A big thank you to Roger and Hilary Thorp and everyone at Shirley RC for answering all my questions about the course beforehand, for hosting the event and making us feel very welcome.

The final race has made a change to the overall standings. Helen Boatman is the overall series winner for 2013, finishing just 5 points ahead of Rosie Armitage (Team Echelon-ROTOR), who didn’t take part in the final event. Annis Moore remains in third. Helen also wins the title for vets on standard, with a comfortable lead over Sue Smith (Stafford RC) and Annis. The lead in the most improved rider rankings changed again with the final event, with Fay Barrington coming out on top, ahead of Kim Shaw (Team Cherwell) and Annis.

For information about the end of series dinner (Nadine Mayhew is organising and we expect it to be in October or November 2013), and for details on next year’s series, join the Women's Cycling Midlands Facebook page or keep an eye on the women's series webpage.
Finally, a big thank you to everyone that’s taken part or helped organise a great series, particularly Ruth Eyles, without whom the series wouldn’t happen. Let’s see if we can make next year even better. Please encourage all your team mates to give time trialling a go!
