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 up with plenty of time. Sadly, while James pulled off a 49:51 (I think he was 23rd, on a day when the third fastest ’25’ was recorded), all I could manage was 56:35, probably about a minute slower than I’d have expected. I have no idea why my form dipped so much (but I have some worries on that score). On the day, I just couldn’t get comfy on the bike, and couldn’t keep a steady effort. And getting slowed up at the turn wasn’t a great morale-booster either. Oh well, onwards and upwards. I hope!
