This was a breezy day with a tail wind out on the course and a headwind back. Two riders from Severn for this event – myself and Rich Emery. My first time on this course, it is gently rolling and suits the powerful riders. Rich Emery came in at 43rd position with 1:07:08. I clocked 57:24, joint 10th with Steve Cottington from Bath CC (My long term rival and friend!) However through the race I had Rob Pears at my back on the 2nd lap, where he just caught before the last roundabout, but at that moment a rocket past us in the form of Marin Bialoblocki (he holds all the current time trial national records if you didn’t know). Marcin completed the course in 48:11 taking the course record off Matt Burden, who set it a few years ago at 52:55.
All in all not a bad event.
