Quite breezy for this morning’s time trial on the F15/10. Having “missed out” on the previous weekend’s Hardriders event (I marshalled in Woburn Sands), it was good to get the cobwebs blown off. From home it’s only a few miles over to the Brogborough course, and about the right distance to make sure the legs are spinning well!
Getting down the Brogborough hill was pretty good – not too twitchy as I passed the underpass. I did see one club mate walking back with a puncture near the Marston Moretaine RAB – no such misfortune for me fortunately. The direction of the prevailing breeze was mostly affecting the return leg and as is so common, the last few hundred metres to the line seemed to take an eternity!
I finished in 23:11, not too bad, but I had hoped for a quicker ride, I guess.
