The club have lent me a great little TT bike and my Cuz has lent me his carbon deep wheels. So as i’m not allowed to do TT on the roads the events are quite limited. I attend my 1st 10 TT on 24 April 14 at Fords Dunton test track. I was really happy with my result 30.48.
Track Lap Times 24 April 2014
I have had a mixed start to this year with a couple of good finishes but i haven’t seen the form of previous years. I felt like my form was working out well for the first race on the National Series at Hetton le hole with hot competition from all over the UK it was always going to be tuff race. The weather played its part with the wind breaking up race. On lap two I suffered a mechanical with my gears not working i missed the attack and went backwards through the field. I rode to the end with great disappointment.
The long awaited evening had come, and our club were able to use the velodrome for the 1st time. Twenty nine of my club mates and myself along with six coaches and the support crew lead by Justine finally made it into the track centre we had a safely brief and were put into our groups.
The place is very empty when there are no events going on and really big..
We got onto the track which was very exciting, seeing that team GB had won so many golds and broke records.. Bit like your local rugby team turing up to play at Twickenham very surreal.
We took it easy on our first session but we did manage to get to the top of the track and its a long way down for sure.
