Richmond Park Time Trial - Round 8

Sunday morning saw a good field of ladies on road bikes battling it out in the early morning sun at the Richmond Park Time Trial, round 8 of the league's calendar

In the end the win went to Jasmijn Muller (Kingston Wheelers) after her team mate, Maryka Sennema suffered a mechanical. Second place went to Helen Ralston (Les Filles RT) and third to Clare Miller (Team 22).

Helen's second place means she is now our league leader after 8 rounds - see rankings.

Les Filles RT have an almost unassailable lead at the head of the team rankings but London Phoenix and Kingston Wheelers could still battle it out for second and third. 

A special mention must go to VC Norwich this week who have travelled en masse to south and west London for Crystal Palace and the time trial. Their commitment to the league is great and they are in 5th in the team rankings now, only just behind London Dynamo. 

With four rounds still to go but only riders' top seven results being counted in the rankings, we could see some jostling for position in the top 20 in upcoming rounds. 

Guildford Town Crits is round 9 on Wednesday 10th July. We'll see lots of you there.
