Well done to those who braved the traditional golden sunshine of winter for a cheeky TT on the E18/11 course this Boxing Day.
In the spirit of the festive season, TT equipment, although not banned, carried hefty penalties with TT bikes incurring 90 seconds; aero bars 60 and aero helmets and deep rim/disc wheels 30 seconds. That the winner needed none of these to achieve their time of 30:02 is testament to the fact that all you really need to compete is a massive seasonal meal the day before.
Nobody was brave enough to reap the 60 second bonus of competing on a mountain bike, but kudos to Dan and Gill Carter who released their inner elf and outer grinch fleece to win a box of Celebrations.
With thanks to Helen Spraggins, Len Gordon & Dave Nock for organising, timing and signage.
