Time Trialling

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 →

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 →

Team VeloVelocity ’25’ E2/25 3/9/16

I’d entered this event on the back of a recent 55:40 at the Finsbury Park CC ’25’ on the F1B/25 – I hoped to do a decent ride on a quick course. Of course, after Alex Dowsett’s storming ride on… Continue reading →

Bossard Wheelers ’10’ F11/10

Left to my own devices for the weekend, I decided to ride the 22 or so miles out to the Bossard Wheelers ’10’, held on the F11/10 course out by Tring. I had a slight delay while I tried to… Continue reading →
