Stoke Hammond ’10’ 31/5/17

After a couple of weeks without racing (and indeed a week off the bike), I turned out for the club ’10’ on a sunny evening at the end of May. I’ve been getting a little concerned about the downturn in… Continue reading →

Lea Valley ’25’ E2/25 8/4/17

Just a brief report here, drafted a month late. This event was run on a lovely spring afternoon, very warm and dry. A bit breezy, but no too bad. I’d travelled over with James, and we were about an warming… Continue reading →

Brogborough ’10’ 5/4/17

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… Continue reading →

Team Salesengine ’10’ F2D/10 1/4/17

I had reasonable hopes for this event – it’s a nice DC course with a smooth turn at the Cambridge end. I travelled out with Katja, who’s start was (as I recall) about 4 minutes after me. It was fairly… Continue reading →

Stoke Hammond ’10’ 18/3/17

This was the first event of the season with a major effort required for placing warning signs. Nathan and I went round placing signs – the whole exercise took rather too long and left me with a bit of a… Continue reading →

Port Talbot Wheelers 2-up ’25’ 12/3/17

The Port Talbot Wheelers 2-up event is usually my first open event of the season, and the first of Team Grumpy’s two regular 2-up events in the season (the other being the Duo Normand, of course). In recent years, the… Continue reading →

Astwood ’10’ 4/3/17

After the uncertainty around this event, it went off almost without a hitch and with a sizeable turnout of riders. I rode up to the BikeBus in time to see Tony setting out the signs around the start, and then… Continue reading →

SRAM eTap Aero – Part 3

Just a brief update on my last posting about the SRAM eTap Aero kit. I now have a fully functional eTap set up on my main time trial bike, almost two months to the day that I first reported the… Continue reading →

New Year’s Day ’10’

This is an event that’s always a good start to the year, despite the generally cold weather: it’s good to blow the cobwebs off, and it’s a change from turbo training! The weather forecast was pretty appalling: heavy rain starting… Continue reading →

SRAM eTap Aero – Part 2

This is a longer-term update: I’ve ridden with the eTap Aero group on my Cervelo P5 for pretty much the whole of the 2016 season, from mid-March through to my traditional season closing event, the Duo Normand in late September…. Continue reading →
