Team Spirit in Milton Keynes

Sunday morning witnessed three of the four team members of Team battling it out to be top dog at the Team Spirit 10 in Milton Keynes.

The F5 looks like it should be a quick course, decent road surface, reasonably sheltered in parts and nice dual carriageway. Problem is that it is very draggy and despite good temperatures there was a strong headwind on the way back from the turn, this all conspired to slow times down.

Winner of the fastest man in the team award goes to Dave Wentworth who battled through the wind in 24:41 for a 21 second beating of Steve Robinson who finished with 25:02. Paul King had a bit of an off day and was a bit further back on 25:44, but he'll be back with avengance I'm sure in the next few weeks.

Didn't get time to hang on to see who won it, but we missed out on the team prize to Team Milton keynes who had a couple of guys in the top 5. Close but no cigar this time for the team prize, but our day will come!
