The following 'Thanks' which I have taken from the official programme: "GB Fire Service FSSAA thank both Phoenix CC (Aintree) & Liverpool Century Road Club for allowing the emergency services time trial champs 2009 to be incorporated into our long running established events, without whose help it would be very difficult for an event of this size to take place."

When we arrived we discovered four miles of traffic cones which St Helens Council had erected to facilitate grass cutting of the central reservation. You may like to express our thanks to the Council for their very decorative and colourful display of cones which added an extra dimension to the event. At one stage however the event was in danger of being cancelled, but with competitors coming from all over the country that would have been a disaster. Finally it got away at 3:31pm, 90 minutes late. Even then the first riders had to ride through 1/4 mile of cones as they approached the Wheatsheaf pub.

The weather was mainly sunny, not too hot for racing with a light westerly breeze which was against the riders going up towards the motorway but they were touching 35 mph in places coming down the bypass. Arthur produced an excellent ride and was second in the Vets Cat. There was a good contingent of Phoenix members to cheer him on as he blazed around the course and finished with a time of 22:58.

A good event was enjoyed by all and missed by some!
A big thank you to Keith Linge for taking these photos on both Saturday and Sunday
