National 10-mile Time Trial Champs 2013

After a shocking week of rain, cold and high winds, the weather turned out nice for the big day! The sun was shining and the air temperature had crept into double figures. There was still a brisk northerly breeze that made the final leg a bit painful, but for the rest of the course it was either tailwind or sheltered. This led to some fast times in all event categories. The Time-trialling Forum has some lively discussion (including possible flouted rules) on its results thread. TWG Event Photography took a lot of photos (almost all riders), and they're available to buy as prints. There's also a limited set on the CW website, by Andy Jones.

Here is my speed profile, extracted from my Strava record (below). I was averaging 40-50kmh in the first half, but this dropped right down as the miles wore on.

Here is my entire riding record for the day. I had an easy ride down to the event, but obviously couldn't warm up efficiently before the start because I couldn't exactly stuff my turbo trainer in my rucksack! The ride home was a bit of a battle, into the north wind and getting increasingly fatigued & hungry.
