Lichfield take the win at Silverstone

The Silverstone 9 up Team Time Trial is fast becoming one of the big events on the racing calendar with 720 riders across 80 teams taking part this year.

As the event grows so does the competition so it was always going to be a tough night especially in the very windy conditions the team faced.p1

 A strong team had been assembled which comprised Vicky Webb, Phoebe Martin, Sarah Fleeman, Graeme Asquith, Nigel Roberts, John Buchan, Greg Slater, Rob Arnold and Mike Welburn

Practice on the night went well P4 with the team working out the best places for changes given the blustery conditions.

So at 7.54 the team was released from the pit lane with everything resting on the next 3 laps. 8:08 for Lap 1 and up to 2nd place, Lap 2 and a time of 7:54 but down to 4th, Lap 3 and 8:08 after giving it everything.

A nervous wait for the rest of the teams to finish. Was the last effort going to be enough? Turned out it was with Lichfield CCC taking the win by 16 seconds. P3
Well done all. Fantastic team effort and looking forward to defending the title next year.
