August  2020 results and GC position

August’s TT stage from Axford up to Herriard delivered some super-fast times over the bumpy and twisting 4-mile segment.

In the women’s competition Jools May led the pack with a new segment QoM and an impressive time of 10:43. Izzy Wild took the 12 points for second place with a time of 11:45 and Joanna Clarke was close behind in third place with a time of 12:05.

In the men’s competition, Ben Gibbs once again topped the table. His time of 09:40 came very close to the KoM of 09:28 and was the only posted time that dipped under the 10-minute barrier. Philip Hurst Jr and Martin Evans topped out the remaining podium positions with times of 10:24 and 10:31 respectively.

In the Women’s GC competition, Jools May jumps up to 75 points in second place, however Izzy Wild has now reached 114 points and is mathematically uncatchable for the remainder of this year’s competition, becoming the women’s GC champion-designate. There is still however all to play for in regard to the final podium position of third place, with only 10 points separating Nici Ferguson, Vanda Kyselicova and Joanne Clarke.

In the men’s GC competition Ben Gibbs continues to hold the top position on 119 points, and edges slightly away from James Cocker on 92 points in second place. James can still possibly catch and overhaul Ben, with 30 points remaining on offer this year for September’s and October’s final segments.

Christopher Purver remains in third place on 66 points and can still technically be caught by any of the riders in places fourth to sixth, position currently led by Jim Cascerini.

The segment for September is a short punchy double climb. here’s the segment link https://www.strava.com/segments/25526496
