18th – 31st January – Eric Smith Handicap Trophy – Weston Lane

The Eric Smith handicap Trophy for 2021 started with the 2 lap Weston Lane route.  We last used this route back in 2001, so it would give the older members a perfect chance to see how much we’ve slowed in 20 years 😂  In fact there were 6 of us still going who’d previously done this handicap, Myself, Carol & John Armitstead, Phil Robinson, Mick Jeffrey & Antonio.

2018 handicap trophy winner Bob came home in first 25 seconds ahead of Caroline & Mick’s son Chris just beating his Dad.  Scott recorded the fastest time 18:29, a new V40 record & third fastest ever time.  There were several new age best times by Carol Armitstead, Maddie DeLucchi, John Arnitstead, Tony Pfeiffer, Antonio Cardinale and Phil Robinson.  See more details on the handicap archive spreadsheet here.

It was good to see so many taking part that the handicap points had to be halved, (for 40 or more people), including a few first or second timers.

February’s race will a new two lap, 5 mile circuit of Burley-in-Wharfedale, more details to follow shortly.
