A great Team Time Trial event on Saturday, with a fierce 10 teams competing. I must say, I was pretty wiped out for the rest of the day with the legs only slowly returning to normal this morning.
It was a close call for first place, but team ‘RMRH’ - Real Men Ride Hiram’s (as in Hiram’s highway in Sai Kung), beat Team Colossi (aka Shake-N-Back) by a mere 26 seconds, with an average speed of 41.73kph. Then over 4 mins from the second place Shake-n-Bake boys came the Shinkansen Express.
And our all-ladies team had a blistering ride achieving an average speed of 35.25kph just 90seconds behind the ‘Evel Knievels’.
Race results are attached and should be on our web page in a few days – until then, feel free to circulate.
There’s nothing like a good TTT to get the max out of you, as rotating though 4 riders to the front means you get a short rest from leading the team, before being rotated to the front again.
I hope everyone enjoyed it, you all make these events what they are by turning up, and as ever they continue to be great races with a great atmosphere amongst the teams too.
A big thanks goes out to Luke Fletcher, our timing marshal on the day, especially from me, as without Luke volunteering I would had to be timekeeper – So cheers Luke.
A few quick dates for your diaries (I can't believe we’re into June already!!!!) :-
9-June – Inaugural Show Your Jersey Ride and family Picnic (weather permitting) – I’ll send reminder details out late this week.
16-June – Summer Series Race 2 down at Shek-O (Race 1 results are on the web page, but I have also attached for ref)
23-June – ITT. So this is the same 2x24km course but ridden as an individual time trial.
See you all soon,
And thanks for supporting the Dragons events.
