Reading CC Time-Trial Tuesday 9 May 2017: HCC259 Nettlebed-Pishill 18.23 miles

Tuesday 9th saw a healthy crowd gather in Rotherfield Peppard for the first TT of the year away from Twyford. 19 signed on in broken sunshine with a cool northerly breeze making the first leg even more draggy than normal. Somewhat unsurpisingly given his rich vein of form, Hadyn Rhys James blew the field away with a blistering time, which was no doubt aided by his brand new RCC skinsuit. As the sun disappeared temperatures dropped rapidly and one or two people were sporting extremities which matched the colour of the new kit. My thanks to Ray Bennett for his work with signage and spotting at the turns, and to Chris Goslar and Brian Perry for time keeping duties.

Club Event Calendar 2017

Here are the details of the club's major events for the year. Clubruns aren't shown, but happen every Sunday from the Old Town Hall, usually at 9am.

Tuesday TT 2 May 2017: Twyford HCC132 10 miles, result

It was nice to see an improved turn-out by comparison with last week. The weather was cool but it didn't rain so the conditions were ok for racing. Some warmth would be welcome now though.

Twyford HCC132 10-mile time trial Tuesday 25 April, result

At 17.30 it was hailing hard in Reading but over on the Twyford course the roads were dry. With the discouraging weather just six people signed up to ride. A thin and fit Paul Gray bagged 20 DF points but props to all who rode on a very cold evening. The hail was starting again as the last rider handed in his number. On the way home my Garmin got down to 0.5C.
Thanks go to helpers: Ray and Wendy for excellent signage, Graham and Paddy for TK duties.

Twyford HCC132 10-mile TT 11th April: result

Nice weather for racing on 11th April being dry, bright and mild.

HCC234 Waltham St Lawrence 10-mile TT 18/4/17 - result

A sunny but chilly evening brought out 11 riders. The NE breeze was unhelpful but Hadyn was still able to record a rarely-seen 22 on this circuit course. A few of us got slightly held up by traffic caught behind leisure riders but that's just the nature of this course.
