Club 25 mile TT Championship and Leiden Plaque

It was a great morning of TTing for the club as part of the inter club Leiden Plaque competition on the H25/17 course. DPCC was 2nd in the team comp, with Chris Virgo 3rd in Handicap comp, and Richard Gildea 2nd overall on Scratch.
Richard also becomes the Club 25 mile TT champion for 2016, recording 55m57s for his efforts.
Well done to all riders with many DPCC members having a go at their first 25 mile TT, on what was a far from quick day with a strong westerly. Lastly we would like to say a big thank you to Luke Souter and Banbury Star CC for a fantastic event!
