T107 10 Mile Time Trial League Standings

After Week 1 of the T107 10 Mile TT League, please find the Standings as below.  This shows the Points for fastest and also the Standard points which is based on the VTTA predicted time for the riders age.  As you can see from the table below, Lee Morley has had a great start to the league with 10 pts for fastest and also picked up the maximum 10 points for his VTTA standard time.  Since there are two awards for this event, the current standings would see Lee Morley collect the award for fastest and Phil Wright to collect the award for standard (as the same rider cannot pick up both awards).  But with all to play for over the 7 week series, it will be great to see how this event unfolds.

Please join us for hopefully a less windy ride for Week 2 of the League this Wednesday 1st June at 6.45pm!
