Dragons TTT

We had another great turnout for the second Dragons TTT with the return of 9 teams taking part.
2 loops of the 24km course starting at 06:30 with teams going in reverse order of expected finish time. Our only all ladies team ‘The COWs’ lead the way out the starting gate as the rest of the teams followed at 30 second intervals with Mike Maiers crew, team ‘Shake & Bake’ heading out last with a lot to do, made even harder by having to drag a miss-firing Turbo Thompson around the 48km course. But at the end of the first lap, Shake & Bake on their Road Bikes had stormed through the leading 8 teams at a blistering 40kph to take the lead.
Team racing this time round was managed much better as most teams stayed in tight formation rotating the front rider regularly and thus maintaining good speed. The 2 man team of ‘Hollands Flying Dutchmen’ put in a stella performance and held on pretty well to team Shake & Bake. But at the other end of the team spectrum were ‘The Misfits’ who quickly opted out of the “Team” structure and were seen scattered around the course, but did managed to pull it together at some point, just before crossing the finish line – perhaps it was at their 7-11 coffee stop.
Results and splits attached. Well done everyone, a great morning of racing.
