Assen Day 4 – The Time Trial in Brief

By | 07/08/2016

Taking place on straight country roads north west of Assen – 13km for the Juniors, Nieuwelingen and Category 7. 7.5km for Categories 5 and 6 going down to 2km for Category 1. There were few corners, even few bends – 2 corners for the youth categories over the whole course. The winds were strong though and the roads were very exposed to them.
Best result for the LVYCC Juniors was Callum Mackie with 19.02, average speed 41kmh. Best of the Nieuwelingen was Ben Selfe with 20.01, average speed 39kmh. Best Cat 7 was Dexter Mansel-Thomas with 21.17 – 37kmh. Luke Prenelle did an average 36kmh over his 7.5km in Cat 6. Best Cat 4 was Owen Prenelle, he finished a fantastic 4th with an average 32kmh over 5.7km. In Cat 2 Carys Lloyd also finished 4th, 1st girl – with an average 28kmh over 3km. Anna Lloyd did an average 24kmh over 2km and finally Leo Bolton completed the Aspiranten lap with an average 18kmh over 1.4km.

There were a couple of monumental showers but also plenty of sunshine and apple cake. Some were disappointed, some happy – tomorrow it’s the Omloop – the cobbles.
