The 25 riders who were at the start line for the eighth SNCC TT of the season were pleased to see that the conditions were much more favourable than the previous week. The only possible blight on the evening was the strong wind especially up to the golf course turn which would make any PB hard earned on the 11.2 mile Abbotsley course.Read more...
15 foolhardy riders came out last night to try the resurfaced-in-places 11.2 mile course. The concern about loose chippings were unfounded although there was a lot of mumbling that the holes were better because at least you could see them. The night was destined to have a low turnout due to the very windy conditions making PB's an unlikely prospect. We had 4 guests, a gorgeous new helper (Nicky) and a very happy mascot in Austin (Andrew Knowles gorgeous flat haired retriever) who was completely bonkers but lovely. Mandy finally (after 3 years of persuading) managed to get her sister out to help and she had a lovely time shouting the boys home like a fishwife!Read more...
Another superb evening for the 6th SNCC TT of the season which was enjoyed by 26 riders including some “old faces” making their 2017 debut.
Warm welcome back to Becky Layland and Ian Turner and also to former member Mark Mossop.
The conditions promised a few PBs and 7 were delivered by Craig, Alan, Dawn, Norman, Alistair, Becky and Simon – well done to all these riders.Read more...
“Why, oh why!“ was the only thought that my brain could coherently hold for more than a couple of seconds. I was currently heading towards a place called Hem in phase three of a newly ingrained “four positions on the bike interval session”. Tops, Hoods, Drops and finally the now almost forgotten and increasingly hard to find on modern bars “Corners”. Over the previous 5 hours I had discovered to my eternal delight that when on the tops and through very subtle changes in grip pressure I could rattle my eye balls to the point it was impossible to focus, cause quite painful brain rattle, make my triceps flap (do I really have chicken wings?) or smash all my fingers together concertina style.Read more...
A superb evening for the 5th SNCC TT of the season and the warm benign conditions were enjoyed by 26 riders around the 11.2 mile Abbotsley course. The wind on our backs for the first 3 miles to the golf club turn made for a very good start to the TT.
The portents were all in place for a number of PBs to be delivered this evening and there were 8 in total, led by James Dent taking 55 seconds from his PB followed by Pat ( 36 seconds) , Wayne ( 27s) , Ruth ( 21s) , Nic ( 13s) , Mick ( 11s) , Dawn ( 7s) and Dave Salmon ( 3s). Well done to all eight.Read more...
