Once again the temperature gauge was reading 1 degree on the car as we approached the hall for this event that as per usual had a massive prize list. Unfortunately none of which ended up in the pockets of the 3 Sydenham riders taking part. Yet again Dave Twin was one of the first off and noticed the cold conditions on the decent and to the first turn, eventually finishing in 1.04.52 (61st). Steve Thurgood hit the course next and finished in 1.02.57 (52nd). Last club rider off was Ian O’Hara riding his first time trial in a number of years, finished in 1.02.31 (49th). The course has masses of potholes, but even this didn’t seem to slow down race winner Jonathan Parker, Team Botrill who finished in a new course record of 50.48. The woman’s course record also fell to Bronwen Ewing, Rye and District Wheelers in 59.39 (29th).

Steve Thurgood requested an early start and as David Twin asked to be near Steve on the start sheet as they were travelling together, it resulted in Dave getting an earlier start than Steve. As this was another cold day it was just what was needed! The outward section of the event wasn’t too bad but once you turned you felt the headwind. Dave felt the effects of the cold in the last 5 miles finishing in 1.04.55 (58th). Steve survived better in 1.03.38 (47th). 2nd claim member Doug Bentall finished in 1.06.26 (66th). The overall winner was Conall Yates, In-Gear Quickvit in 53.51. Hopefully weather conditions will improve shortly!

After the mild weather during the week it was a bit of a shock on Saturday afternoon to be greeted by much colder conditions including a hail down pour as Steve Thurgood and Dave Twin got their bikes out of the car. The conditions generally meant a warm up was needed, but probably a longer one than what actually took place. The breeze was also a bit more than expected. As per usual though this didn’t seem to affect a lot of the field with some very fast times being turned out. This included Jon Coulson who did a PB of 56.24 (34th). Steve did a 1.01.07 (68th) and Dave a 1.01.53 (77th). The winner was J.Dewey, Team Bottril in 49.05.
