The Tour Of Britain Sportive Sunday 25th September 2011

29 09 2011

The weather for the day started “gloomy” but we hoped that this would improve as the day progressed. There were five of us wearing Audlem kit on the start line. Tony Haley,Derek Pegg,Tim Reeves,Paul Baptist and myself. We headed out on undulating roads through Barlaston and Stone to Uttoxeter. From here we headed into the Moorlands via Dove Valley where the first King Of the Mountains stage was tackled at Ramshorn eventually taking us into the Peak District. We tackled a technical descent from Blackshaw Moor to Gun Hill the next King Of the Mountains stage.From here we headed back via Leek to the finish at the Wedgewood Estate.A great event well organised.Definitely one for next years calendar.  We were approached by a number of people making comlimentary remarks about our road race circuit and organisation – always nice to hear.   Members times for the event .  Tony Haley 4hrs 58min, Dom Crisp 4hrs 59mins, Paul Baptist 5hrs 02 mins, Derek pegg 6hrs 47mins, Tim Reeves (no time recorded due to no chip read out).   Thanks to all the club members who rode the event .  A great day out .   Dom Crisp
