Thursday Race results 28.10.2015

Race results are up for the Individual Time Trial.

In this list you will see groups and workings.  Note that these groups may not be the same as last year.  Your grouping goes by time only.  Your time and speed dictates the group you will be in.

Please do not second guess the team at the registration desk, this wastes time and causes unnecessary stress. 

After the race if you feel you were in the wrong group you can email Catherine  to request a change.
