The club had four teams in the WTRL Team Time Trial last night - 25th March.
It was the first week the ladies had 6 riders that all got out the pen and they finished second in the Vienna platinum league, a superb performance. Surely a win is imminent!
The three men’s teams had a good week, the Mustangs missing a couple of regulars in Rob Boyle and James Walton but still had 7 strong riders. They finished 42nd in class, 131st in the world!
The Suffolk punches managed to get al 8 in the pen this week, although Dave Worrall immediately ghosted and they competed as 7, they backed up lasts weeks 21st in class with a 22nd on another course that wasn’t ideally suited to their physical attributes. They are just 36 seconds off a platinum league place and are optimistic ahead of next week’s flat course.
The Stallions were down to 4 this week, which minimises rest for all the team as the 4th rider onwards experience maximum draft, they performed well almost matching their best placings when they had 6 riders 5 weeks ago, a great effort.
There are spaces for two riders in the Mares Team and taking in account availability across the 3 men’s teams probably room for another 3 or 4 men. If you like to get involved please reach out, despite the odd tech failure, it’s one of my highlights of the locked down week and great training for riding in real life!
