Silverstone Time Trial Challenge

This coming Sunday, Banbury Star members are representing the club at the first Silverstone Time Trial Cycling Challenge event which features four different types of challenge from a one-lap flyer of the F1 circuit up to a 25 mile 4-up team TT which builds on the success of BMCC’s 9-up TT held earlier in the year.

So what is the challenge?  Team Sky have set the times to beat with Ben Swift going round the 3.6 mile circuit in 6m56.7s and Team Sky doing the 4-up in 56m46s. Prizes for Sunday’s winners include some of Sky’s Pinarello bikes and sailing on the Landrover/Ben Ainslie Racing America’s Cup yacht.

Best of luck to Mark Boyles, Paul Demicoli, Chris Noble and Matt Watson, with luck and a following wind the 0830 club ride which was coincidentally heading out to Silverstone will be able to call in and support you in your efforts.
