Time Trial Result
Please find attached a summary report of the first of the clubs open time trial events.
Firstly I would like to take this opportunity to thank the following club members, who without their assistance the event would not have taken place:
Rod MacFayden, Nick Davies, Neil Smith, Dave Browning, Brian Perry, Steve Bale, Stephen Milward, Jim Watchorn, Mike Manning, John Barnes, Adam Thompson, Martin Cairns, Mark Robinson and Nic Curcic. Also a thanks to former member Paul Chandler for being the driver for club president John Barnes.
Well done to Huw Dymond and Barry Quick for completing a course on a breezy day.
I am pleased to say that I was able to offer almost half of the entry fees back out to riders.
I am happy to say that the sale of it drinks and cakes - all of which were donated by three member of Helen & Douglas House hospice employee and my girlfriend raised over £100 which will be donated back to Helen and Douglas House.
So, having now organised two events taking place within 6 weeks of each other, I'm off for a break from organising and looking forward to attempting to she'd some more weight by cycling more.
A massive thanks to the above volunteers, those who helped at the road race and the whole RCC committee.
This time of the year sees enough light in the evenings for 25 mile time-trials which give riders an opportunity to test stamina and speed. This week’s event was on the fast H25/1 course at Aldermaston which is always popular, and with ideal conditions some good times were set.
Twenty riders took on the fast H10/1 course on a windy but dry evening, proving that yet again it is one of the best courses for quick times and ideal for the RCC 10 championship.
Barry Quick writes: A total of 27 riders enjoyed a pleasant if somewhat breezy evening at tonight’s TT on the H10/1 at Aldermaston on the A4.
Despite the wind some excellent times were recorded, the fastest being by Ken Buckley of AW Cycles.Adam Thompson was particularly pleased with his time as it was faster than anticipated - he was the only Reading rider to beat 23minutes.
Our guests from Tri 20 were not quite so numerous as last time but declared themselves pleased with their evenings work.
Next week our clubs 10m TT Championship will be held on the same course and as I would like to ride that I’m hoping that someone else will step up to the plate and run it – I need the rest ;-)
Adam Silverson and Steve Stroud helped out this evening, I would have been truly up the creek without them, thanks very much guys.
