Westerley mid-week 10m TT

Normally this article would be part of the weekly TT report, but we’ve been given a shed load of data so I thought that I’d offer some analysis for the riders.

Last night was the last of the Westerley CC Wednesday 10s at the Hillingdon Circuit. The races are 11 laps (so actually about 10.35 miles). This year’s innovation has been the use of transponder technology which helps count the laps and gives intermediate splits. So now we can tell how even each rider’s pace is.

Last night’s event was won by Jerone Walters (Sigma Sport) in 21:43 (21:00 equivalent for 10mls). Our own Peter Dixon was second with 23:18 (22:32). Other Willesden rides were Tom London 25:31 (24:41), Lance Woodman 27:18 (26:25), Bea Geraghty with a PB of 30:43 (29:43) and Balneet Dhiraj, also with a PB, 31:05 (30:04).

Balneet probably rode 20 laps before she decided that she might just have completed the distance!

The summary table below shows fastest, slowest, difference and average (mean) lap times together with the standard deviation from the mean. The lower the standard deviation, the smoother the pacing – something to aim for in time trialling.
