TT #9 K4/25W Wednesday

Hopefully everyone has recovered from the excitement of seeing Dan Bigham break the course record at last week’s 20k time trial. We leave the confines of Ludlow Drive (but not the Warwick Road) for this week’s effort with the added attraction of silverware on offer as it’s the Friswell Cup which is competed for on[…]

TT #8 K4/20 Wednesday

After last week’s Athlete’s TT saw the non-aero Will Vousden record a time that many aero riders can only dream of, we return once more to the 20k course where normal aerodynamically-slippery business will be resumed. Make the most of the opportunity however as we then enter four weeks of longer-distance events away from the[…]
