Busy Weekend for Team VCGH

Great to see so many VCGH time trialists at the Farnborough and Camberley Festive 10 on Saturday at Bentley. We had 7 riders, which made us the most well-attended team there.

Weather was dry and mild (10 degrees), but notable for a raging south-westerly headwind which made for very hard work on the outbound leg. Despite the welcome reprieve on the return leg, these conditions generally make for slower times overall.

The 59-strong field was won by Ken Buckley from Nuun-Sigma Sport-London RT in an astonishing 19:36.

Our results were:

 Pos  Rider      Time      Speed
 12   Jon Hughes  22:08  27.108 Mph 
 16  David Walters  22:43  26.412 Mph
 22  Richard Moore  23:33  25.478 Mph
 25  Matt Hill (road bike)     23:55  25.087 Mph
 25  Mark Pritchard  23:55  25.087 Mph
 29  Lara Taylor  24:23  24.607 Mph
 48  Ali Walters  26:55  22.291 Mph

Well done guys!

At the same time, Laura Senior and Dani Forshaw from our ladies' race team were fighting their corner in the Hillingdon winter series. They had a tough field but held the breakaway at bay. All great experience. 

Oh and definitely the most auspicious event of the entire weekend - Elliot got married! So congratulations to him and lovely Michelle.
