    well did my first time trial tonight ( well done a couple before but was just messin about…)

    got the tri bars on ma road bike, got the skinuit on, and the silly looking time trial helmet and i was on my way 😆

    not much to talk about, got there to find a very boring and dull bunch of people, i was scaed to talk !!!

    iv raced the past 3 days ( btw who was at hetton on wedensday night, a didnt get ya name but he mention gunner so maybe someone of the forum ? )

    my legs were realy tired so wasnt expecting to go to good, was aiming forsome where around the 23, 24 min mark…

    it was a 10 mile tt, the loop being 5 miles so we did 2 laps

    i got off and my legs were wrecked… but just plucked away and tried to keep a high speed,

    a got 23 mins 14 seconds, so was pleased tbh… i reckon on fresher legs and now i no how to pace my self i’ll be able to get a low 22…

    the top lads get around the 21 minuite mark

    i must admit i got into it, misse the crack etc but was still a good challenge, and a change from usual racin

    think am going to do one every 2 weeks or so… and ive got a feeling it will be good for the cross as your pushing a harder gear, so just like churning through the mud…

    it was fun, i’ll give you that…

    Very good, this surely puts you on parr with the best Junior TT riders in the country, well certainly in the area at least.

    Sounds like you did good mate, 2 minutes below the top lads is something to be proud of. You’ve come a long way in your riding since you started 🙂

    Reasonable time – just think what you could have done if you hadn’t been bored! 😛

    GHS = schoolboy rather than junior, so lots of time to improve.

    My mate Ceri Pritchard still holds the current schoolboy national 10 record with 20:13, so a bit to go yet. He’s now in his thirties, so it’s been on the shelf a little while …. ready for breaking!!! 😀

    Marty, you are like a dog with a bone. They didn’t want you . . . for obvious reasons. Get over it.

    harry, what the fuck are you on about,

    he’s a rival cos we allways have a good battle, not cos he rides for a team…

    ive never tryed to get on the team, and dont realy want to…

    i think your the one who needs to get over it, forever picking a fight…
