Hillingdon Circuit Racing
Ken Buckley and Stuart Williams went to the category 2/3/4 race at Hillingdon last week. Local rider Darren Parker was also there. Buckley reports from an exciting race: "I've never raced with cat 2's before so it was no surprise to see one guy off the front of the pack for nearly the entire race. I got a bit carried away after ten minutes and had a dig off the front but only stayed out for a lap.
- On a provisional basis, the most reliable rider is COLIN GARNHAM whose ride was a few seconds under the target time of 3:15:00.
- Thanks again to my helpers, Doug Aspinall, Pete Stocker, Paul Marshall, and Mike Manning
- Special thanks to Ian and Mary for their great hospitality and delicious refreshments after the ride.
- And thanks to Trevor for the brilliant pictures - a great idea!
- We raised £55 for the Berks Oxon and Bucks Air Ambulance - well done.
Despite an early, chilly start, twelve riders signed on to tackle the first TT of the club season on the Fairmile course, which although having four roundabouts is a fairly flat fast circuit.
RCCs Ken Buckley set a very fast early season 21:35, followed by Nick Parris of Tri20 with 24:13 and a very close Callum Hughes of RCC at 24:19.
This was a day when the train took the strain for some of those who were brave or insane enough to ignore the weather forecast !
Steve Ferry was a quarter of the brisk group:
A few keen (obsessed?) cyclists gathered at the Market Place at 9am. The
forecast was for the weather to get worse, but what can happen? Eight
degrees and raining, I've been out in worse.
