Cyclists struggle in blustery conditions
THE weather had changed from the good conditions for the Somerset RC 10-mile TT U21/10.
THE weather had changed from the good conditions for the Somerset RC 10-mile TT U21/10. This the second in a three-race series saw Wheelers Steve Chmiewliski and Rob Heathcote compete along with 51 other riders. Rob was the first Wheeler to go and with the conditions blustery around the whole course it was going to be a fight out to the turn and then try to return back quicker if possible. Rob looked good as usual with Steve cheering him on halfway up the course. Rob managed to complete the course in 23.52, which would give him 19th overall at the finish. Steve set off about an hour later and with the conditions just as bad as earlier it was definitely a fight for the first five miles. The return leg home was a little easier in places and Steve managed to record his best time of the year with a 23.35, giving him 18th place overall. Well done to all who rode and many thanks to Somerset RC for hosting the event. Here's hoping the third race will have better conditions.Also a reminder to all riders, Weston Wheelers and Somerset RC club 10-mile time trials have started and run every Wednesday evening until the end of August. Sign on time is 6:15pm at the Axbridge bypass layby. All welcome to come and try. Please see the website www.westonwheelers.co.uk for more information.
