The travelling Mr King

Throughout May Paul king has been a busy boy driving around the South sniffing out fast courses and fast times. Mostly he seems to have been battling windy days but the results have still been fantastic.

He started the month with a top 30 placing in the ECCA 10 on a blowy day in Essex, which he followed up with a strong ride in the Maldon & District CC 25. Problem with that was he had too many minutes late start to count in the decent placings.

Things got much better further into the month as he headed down towards Portsmouth for the very rapid P613 10. He's a man who loves the heat and so he wasn't affected by the near 28 degree temperatures on the day. His time of 23:26 bagged him 13th place in the field of 109 and the honour of the second fastest 10 of the year so far for the team.

A 20 mph wind and challenging course on Sunday 30th put paid to any ideas of a 50 mile PB in the Maldon & District event, but his stirling 2:17:01 got him 25th place and a decent points haul towards his target in the SPOCO SE series.

Top riding PK, nice one!
