TT Roundup 15/04/2018

45RC’s first visit to Salcey Forest took place on Tuesday with several riders taking to the start sheet for VeloElite. Fabos and Jack swapping positions from the week before with Fabos taking 2nd overall on the night, only losing out by 3 seconds. Gavin Howells also took the road bike honours on the night with an impressive time! It was also great to see so many of our ladies racing this week and some really good times were posted by all. Summary of riders times on the night:

 

  • Fabos Young 22:24
  • Jack Patmore 22:51
  • Gavin Howells 23:08
  • Paul Hardy 24:39
  • Gary Hewitt 26:23
  • Steve Henman 27:14
  • Glyn Poole 27:49
  • Caroline Hewitt 28:50
  • Joanne Lee 30:53
  • Lisa Brady 31:53

 

Next week is at Salcey Forest again with a 7.15pm start.

 

Thursday night, just the one entrant to the Kettering CC time trial and it was an impressive one, James Hyde taking the honours with a 33:04 on his road bike by a minute and a half and over 2 minutes to the first TT bike. It was a very difficult night with a south-westerly wind not really helping the riders out too much at all. Next week is also at Grafton Underwood, 6.30pm start.

 

I entered the VTTA East Anglia time trial run by the Beds Road Race Team on the E33/25 course on Saturday, having overheard some of the pre-race chat between some of the veterans, the sweetspot is just under the hour for what’s classed as a good time on this course, so that set the precedence for me. I stopped the clock at 1:01:39 and 34th overall, not what I’d hoped for but the course was tougher than expected and I couldn’t have tried any harder! What’s impressive, or demoralising depending on how you want to view it is that David Langlands (1st) fresh off the back of winning the E2/25 last week, posted 51:42 to take the win! Next week for me is the N&DCA round at Sawtry.
