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/
