NORLOND 10 - Sunday 25th April

A near perfect morning with just a light breeze from the south, but cool at 10 degrees and wet, wet,wet plus even more wet!! But what a stonking morning for Chris and Dave.

Chris, currently in the form of his life, produced a 23:45 - his first time ever to average over 25mph. Well done Chris, I'm well chuffed for you mate. You really are in form of your life - plus a bit more.

Dave recorded a 22:38 - a current PB and now just a mere 13 seconds short of that life time best set way back in 1976.

Lea Valley 25 - Saturday 10 April

Dave Wentworth actually managed to get a ride in an Open event on the fabled E2/25 and made the most of it. Although a rising headwind made it a very tough return trip from the 12.5 mile turn Dave recorded a very respectable 58:28. Just 8 seconds short of his life time best - and it's still April. Well chuffed is an under statement!!

ECCA 10 - Saturday 27th March

Second event of the year, first trip the the E2 for Dave & Chris.

A particularly tough day greeted the riders with a strong/blustery head/side wind to the turn. The only advantage from the strong wind was the final 2.5 miles - which was an absolute flyer!

With the winner only recording a 21:22 and several sub-21 minute guys recording short 23's, Dave was well chuffed with his 24:08 - even if the timekeeper did record him as a 23:08, if only!! Chris did a stonker of a ride with a 25:11.
