The forecast was for rain, but as it turned out, this event was held on a rather lovely spring morning, with a gentle breeze. The event was organised by the North Bucks Road Club, with the clubroom used as the HQ, We used the F5d/10, which is the new ’10’ course based on the Stoke Hammond bypass.
Conditions were fairly similar to those for the recent NBRC club event, and I improved by a measly 3 seconds to record a 23:25. As far as I recall, the winning time was a long 21 – a fine ride by Jason Gurney (Team MK). It was good to see a strong turnout from NBRC members.
This is the third event run on the F5d/10 – I reckon it’s a pretty tough course, with a lot of climbing (OK the gradients are pretty shallow, but when trying to maintain a reasonable race pace they are quite hard!) to the turn.
Results to follow.
