Hounslow and District Wheelers 10m TT, H10/8, Bentley.
A warm day with a light breeze that seemed to help more on the way back. Peter Cookson was the fastest WCC member despite having to wrestle his new deep-section front wheel in the crosswind – He recorded a 23:45. Gill Reynolds did a 25:46 in a superfast women’s section won by Julia Shaw (Utag Yamaha.com) in 21:19. I recorded a season’s best of 23:56 (blog here). The fastest male rider was Wouter Sybrandy (Sigma Sport) with a 20:05.

Ron Purdy did a 32:40. The event was won by Jon Simpkins (www.drag2zero.com) in 20:56 .
High Wycombe CC 25m TT, H25/2, Marlow
Today was cooler. There was a light breeze and later starters were drizzled on. Stuart Birnie (blog here) was fastest of the WCC crowd with a PB of 1:00:04 to finish 32nd of the 89 finishers. Also PB’ing was Simon Wicks with a 1:00:38 (37th). I did a 1:02:17 (50th. Blog here) and Brian Moon did a 1:13:42 (84th). The winner was Rob Griffiths (www.athleteservices.com) in 54:42.
The weekend of 5th/6th June looks a bit thin. On Saturday there’s a South Bucks RC club ’10’ on the H10/2 (Knowl Hill) and a rare 30m TT on the H30/8 (Bentley). There’s also an Oxonian CC ’10’ on the H10/17S (Kingston Bagpuss). On Sunday there’s a ’25’ organised by Hitchin Nomads on the F1/25 (Tempsford).
Tuesday is the closing date for the next West London Combine event (a ’25’ at Great Missenden) on Sunday 30th May. If you haven’t entered and want to, please contact me ASAP.
