If the tarmac wasn’t already in danger of melting in the searing heat of summer 2018, Charlotte Boothman would have blistered it anyway with the impressive TT rides she has laid down this year in her first full season for ABC Centreville. Her year began with a spring that included five wins.
Since then she did the Tour of Cambridge Chrono Time Trial to qualify for the UCI worlds in Italy with second in her age category and 7th overall female.
She was joint winner of the NLTTA (North Lancs Time Trial Association) 25 mile championships with Deborah moss
She was first lady in the NLTTA 50 mile championships
Charlotte rode her first ever 100 mile TT at the NLTTA 100 mile championships which was incorporated in the national 100 Championship. She was first NLTTA lady and 8th female overall with 4.18.56, a new NLTTA women’s record, and is Ladies Association Champoion (25/50/100 miles) to keep Dan Shackleton company with his NLTTA long distance championship win for 50, 100 and 12hrs.
Charlotte was 17th out of 43 women in the national 10 mile TT in Scotland
She rode her first first 21 min 10 mile TT, with 21.31 in the Lancaster CC 10 mile time trial, helping ABC Centreville to 2nd place in the team competition team with Steve Whittington and Paul Basso
She also won the West Pennine 25 mile TT Eva benson trophy again.
Congratulations Charlotte on a great year building on Centreville’s strong tradition of women riders. With new member Janine McGreggor coming 3rd in her first race on a bike this week after only riding a handful of times, things look promising in green for 2019….
