Open TT 1st October Supported by Sunday Club Clothing
28   Riders   turned   up   from   38   sign   ups   to   brave the   less   than   favourable   conditions.   The   P337 course   record   was   smashed   by   James   Boyman of   Hoops   Velo,   with   a   very   impressive   time   of 22m   05s   on   our   sporting   course.   Our   hearts went   out   to   Michelle   Walter   of   Bournemouth Arrows,   as   she   suffered   a   puncture   just   before the   start,   but   didn’t   give   in   and   took   the   late start    penalty    to    still    compete!    The    Tornado would   like   to   thank   Sunday   Club   Clothing   for supporting    the    event    and    for    Estrella    Bikes   displaying some of their awesome machinery.

National TT Thruxton 15th October Two Tornado’s go sub 30 minutes
Two     Tornado's     reported     at     Thruxton     race circuit   this   morning,   for   the   RTTC   National   TT event.    The    back    section    of    the    circuit    was unpleasant   with   quite   a   headwind,   which   got worse   by   the   lap!   Mission   accomplished   for   sub 30    minutes    of    the    11.4    mile    course.    Adrian Watkins   beat   his   previous   best   with   an   official time   of   29m   56s   and   Richard   Wyeth   with   a   time of   28m   36s.   We   certainly   weren't   last   on   the lists,   out   of   all   participants   (270,   with   3   DNF's) Adi   was   191st   and   Rich   159th.   A   brilliant   job   all round.
