The final North Norfolk Wheelers time trial of the season took place on Sunday. This was a challenging 18.5 mile hilly course taking in short climbs up to Weybourne and Kelling Heath, and faster flatter sections of main road from Holt to Upper Sheringham and along the coast road. There was a strong head wind up the hills and a bit of traffic on the main road (as is normal nowadays) but at least the sun was out!
Mike Padfield of North Norfolk Wheelers did the course in 46.59 (an average of 23.6 mph) to get the win and a PB by over 1 minute, followed by Ben Keeley (Team Velo-Velocity) in 49.23 and Phil Watkins (34 Nomads) in 50.23. A number of club riders were also in action at the Woodlands ‘Super Sprint’ Triathlon in the morning with Amanda Marshall winning her age-group and John Morgan 5th overall and 2nd in his age group (who also did the Hilly TT).
Thanks to the marshalls, timekeepers and assistants for helping out and for propping up the bin at the finish!
See you at the AGM/Annual Dinner this winter (timing tbc) and for another year of racing from April 2018…
