RDFCC Kilo Sprint

A fine cool evening greeted riders for first time trial of the RDFCC spring / summer series.  It was a flat 1 kilometer course between Parkend and Whitecroft, with a few sheep offering the only obstacles on the short course for the 14 riders who turned up.

Quickest on the night was recent Army retiree Rob Hussey (RDFCC) in a time of 1min 8, closely followed by the ever consistent Dave Bucknall (RDFCC) 1 min 11.  Taking third spot was Steve Beal (Velo Viteesse)  1min 13, even more impressive since he was riding a standard road bike.

Special mention has to go to Hubert Towell (Severn Valley Tri) making a return to riding RDFCC events after nearly a 25 year break and coming a respectable 5th place. Sara Sleeman produced an outstanding time of 1 min. 33 for her first ever time trial.

RDFCC will be running time trials thought the summer every Tues nights, for more details visit http://www.rdfcc.org.uk/wp/club-time-trials-2019/

Lydbrook 10 – 30th April 2019

Good conditions for the 16 riders on this first ride with the new tarmac section. Impressive early season PBs, Rob, fastest man, taking nearly 1 min off his. Emily with the fastest time for a woman RDFCC member despite missing the turn!
