Lloyd doubles up again

CatfordCC Equipe/Banks Elite Team member Lloyd Chapman, has done it again at the weekend – another 2 Races = another 2 wins! Lloyd has the impressive palmares in that he has won all 5 Time Trials that he has ridden this year, prompting the CTT’s own website (the governing body) to report his latest victories with a headline of ‘Chapman in a class of his own as form continues’. On Saturday Lloyd rode the Plomesgate 10 mile TT in Suffolk over a testing course near Sudbourne. On the day the conditions were far from ideal with a strong wind which put the chance of a course record (also held by Lloyd) out of the window, but Lloyd still won with a time of 20:40, putting almost 2 minutes into the second placed rider! On Sunday Lloyd moved on to the Chelmer Hilly Hardriders 25.6 mile TT, that is now turning into a classic, with National TT champion Alex Dowsett winning in 2016. This year however Lloyd was in a league of his own and again won in a time of 49.37 with almost a minute to the 2nd placed rider! Chapeau Chapperz!
