TT Report: Week 7

Bob Simpson
Originally uploaded by madcyclepath

It was a blusery evening with a strong south-westerly which made the return leg a tough run to Bridgend. Thunder thiged Ross Dewar stormed home in a time only 12 seconds slower than his pb last week. Matt Muir claimed a course record for a fixed wheel and was a minute faster than the last time he rode - and that's without training for a month!

Big John is back on form coming in third and Dean is back in the grove with a 42 second improvement on his previous week's time. Kevin joined up on the night and turned in a stonking 28.11 for his first ever TT. Yellow peril Bob Simpson road a fresh bike but couldn't go faster than his pb two weeks ago. Allan knocked a massive 22 seconds off his PB, in only his second TT and Grant did well to get under evens without tribars. Melwin claimed the lantern rouge in his first time trial but his riding gets stronger each week and I can see him getting under 30 minutes before the end of the season.
