Saturday 24th February – Eccup Alwoodley Lane Handicap

David Cattanach romped to an easy win at a cold and sunny Eccup reservoir.  Ursula just caught Laura for second.  Lizzie had the honour of recording the fastest time of the day, which I am pretty sure is the first time a woman has the fastest time in 30+ years of Otley AC handicaps!

Update:  Lizzie is the 3rd woman the third woman to record the fastest time, after Anne Pickles, Eccup New Inn, Oct. 2012 & Sharron Smith, Thruscross, Sept. 2010, see more details in an updated handicap speadsheet here.

Laura Johnson keeps her lead at the top of the table on 39 points 7 ahead of Bob Payne and 11 ahead of Tom Hannah and Ursula.  See the full 2018 table here.

The next race is in a couple of weeks, Sat. 10th March, 11:00am start at Esholt, the start is at the end of the road next to the sewerage works.
