Round the Island Time Trial 2014
RTI 2014 winners

Congratulations to Nicole Lau who won the ladies True Grit in a very commendable time of 6 hours 44 minutes and Lam Shing Yip who just scraped in under the 6 hour mark to win the mens True Grit 5 hours 59 minutes. The Whimps overall winners and new mixed open record holders are team “Sugar Rush” 5 hours 17 minutes, not fazed by the near 30 degree temperatures that hottest day of the year so far threw at the runners.
 
Dave thanks all the helpers on Saturday and Sunday who made the RTI such an enjoyable and successful day, remember the party is on May 8th at the Mariners Club.
