If a week in politics is a long time, it certainly was in Time Trialling, on the 2nd May.
The weather was only marginally better, with a sharp N.E. wind, but the turnout was 4 times better than the last 2 races. 13 of the 24 racers were guests and 4 were 2nd claim members.
It took a professional Triathlete, Joe Skipper of Team Skipper to beat our top rider Charlie Nurse into 2nd place, but Charlie still holds the most recent fastest time of 20m30s. The course record of old is 20m07s by the late Zak Carr.
Two other European Triathletes did really well, Kim Morrison of Race MCB setting a new female course record of 22m15s and Dave Chesterman of UEA CC taking 3rd place among the men with 22m05s.
Unfortunately, Mike Padfield crashed whilst road racing in the Lotus League, breaking his bike, injuring his leg and picking up bad road rash. We wish Mike a speedy recovery and return to racing.
Next Tuesday is the first 25 mile TT of the season, starting at the Letheringsett layby just outside Holt at 6 45 pm
