Location: SL7 1JE, United Kingdom
All 111 finishers enjoyed almost perfect weather conditions for the "Blue Riband" time trialling event of the UK, and Ryan Perry (Langdale Lightweights RT) forced the pace on the return leg to win by 20s, pushing defending champion Matt Bottril (drag2zero.com) into 2nd. Here are the full results, published on Facebook.
My ride was rather less successful, as I had to stop once when my chain unshipped on a climb, and had to slow for a short time when it unshipped again.

I only just scraped a long '56, despite favourable weather conditions. Maybe it was something to do with the chain coming off twice!

Huge huge thanks to Gordon and Margaret Wright, High Wycombe CC and the countless marshals and helpers. The whole event was extremely professional, the dedication to make the course work in spite of red tape was humbling, and the shouts of encouragement from the roadside were much appreciated.
