The start area.

I’ve done it once before in 2012 – 42.24 – 2nd.

This year I finished 4th in 42.54. It’s always good to get the first race out of the way. I have been quite comfortable getting the miles in. I’ve done a few hill efforts, but nothing like a long TT. I started quite conservatively, and probably finished a little stronger than I started. There are some fast downhills, and a few long drags. There is the odd section of 12% climb at the start, but it is not a real hilly TT.

I was quite relaxed about the whole thing. Afterwards, I rushed off to Whitedown Lane to do another 100 Climbs. The new TT bike was fine, though there is no super free speed with it.

1st was Chris Macnamara 42.17 ish

1st lady was Alice Lethbridge

It was quite tight at the top with just 40 seconds behind winner. It’s unlike me but I can’t think of anything else to write at moment. Time for a lie down and nice cup of tea.
