Gt Yarmouth CC Good Friday '10 (10-mile time trial)

Location: Wortwell, United Kingdom

A brisk northerly cross-wind breeze didn't stop some excellent times being posted on a sunny and relatively mild morning. Feat of the day had to be credited to Harley Matthews (Team Pedal Revolution) who suffered an instant puncture with two miles to go, crashed and rode the last two miles on a flat and with bad road rash! Results have been posted on the velouk website.

I was happy with my performance, concentrating on keeping my 3s avg power between 320 and 360 watts. I unintentionally rode quite a low cadence, just keeping it in top gear for most of the time. I rode to and from the event, and here's my ride (including the time trial) on Strava:
