Gateway Summer Time Trial Series – Week 11

It was a very warm 24 degrees this evening and thirteen riders tried their hand at pedalling like a madman around the TT course.

Gateway Summer Time Trial Series – Week 10

Hello all This week we had twelve riders, all of them were optimistic about getting a PB as there was an easterly wind pushing them along St Marys Lane (hooray!), but it was the headwind along Fen Lane (boo!) that slowed a few of them down.

Gateway Summer Time Trial Series – Week 8

Move along now, there’s nothing to see here…. No really, there’s nothing to see! It was a dismal evening for July, chilly, cloudy, and windy. The wind was gusting quite a lot and blowing riders all over the place, the BBC London website said the wind was blowing at 15mph but I’m sure that the gusts were more than that. That said, 8 riders braved it to have a go, they must have some Belgian genes in … Read entire article »

Gateway Summer Time Trial Series – Week 5

Damn you Australia v Holland!! Only seven riders tonight, I think that the world cup is having a negative effect on our TT. I’ll try giving Sepp a ring and ask him to change some of the game times. Of the seven Paul J returned from last summer, and Chris P came back for another go after his bad TT last week and beat his best time from last summer. Only Paul E had a PB tonight, … Read entire article »
