My last race of the season and I suspect most people’s unless they like racing uphill.
A good turnout from the Wheelers with Daniel, Jill, myself and Jackracing, although he was dressed up in MI-Jewson kit.
Good conditions and an almost full field, it was a well run race under new COVID regs.
Dan was the first KW off and did a solid ride of 27:09 and 77th overall. I was the next one off 1hr 19 later, I fumbled my clipping in a bit but gained speed down Warmington Hill, I still don’t have the bottle to be tucked in down there, having already raced this course earlier in the season I wanted to better my time from that. I managed to get a PB by 40 seconds, finishing in 24:07 and 39th. I have been steadily getting better through the season. However, I’m not as good as Jack who was starting only 2 minutes behind me, Jack had a cracking ride and decided to pass me after 6 miles and finished in 20:48 and 4th overall. 20:48 beat the previous course record but ultimately went on to be beaten. Jack was fastest junior and 4th fastest male too.
Last but by no means least was Jill, whilst there were a lot of riders turning up to the start late, Jill was a bit early. A good ride finishing in 25:52 and 60th overall and beating a previous fastest time by 14 seconds.
Well done everyone.
Thanks to Barry Parsons for riding over to cheer on and sneakily getting a mugshot of himself too.
