There was truckloads of Masters teams and decent entries for the Women as well. Only 2 x U17 teams and just 1 x U19 team! Thats a bit dismal IMO.
It was windy, as usual but warmer than last year and due to road works the course was shortened a little, 36-37km per lap (2 laps for elite men). Tailwind coming home made it pretty quick on the return leg. Unfortunately I started my GPS late but I think we did about 56min. I know my team was off the pace (Masters all age) a little but cant find official results yet. Feel free to add a link, otherwise I'll post it up as soon as I find them.

One year we'll do that without the headwind! It would be interesting to see whether that makes us faster or slower.
Oddly I got the speed wobbles twice on the way back when we hit 60+ km/h and I got a gust from the side. The same thing happened last year in the Handicap race the day after the TTT. This is probably the only time I've done these kinds of speeds in windy conditions so something about the bike or the way I'm riding it is prone to setting up the wobble. It freaked me out a bit but I managed to recover and get back up to speed.

We make a club event of it each year and we all stay in same hotel and have a club dinner. We also do scheduled TTT training for the whole club for a couple of months before.

Had a good chat to kev fisher (chief commissar). Didn't spot Alex Simmons but did spot loads of bike porn. You feel a little inadequate with all that hot looking carbon around!
We had the best finishing time of a team of 3 in our category which is some concellation and are chuffed being the fastest masters team from our club. However, we were nowhere near the podium, we have a long way to go to achieve that!
