Wolsey RC 25-mile time trial

Location: Wortwell, United Kingdom

People struggled to get going on a chilly morning at the Norfolk/Suffolk border. It was sunny and there was only a gentle southerly cross-wind breeze, but it still felt REALLY cold! There's a report on the CTT website, plus a small mention in the EDP.

For the TT itself, my average power was 317 Watts, and my average HR was 164 BPM. I went 42.2kmh (26.2mph). I also rode down to this one, riding with Paul Groombridge from Norwich. I would have ridden all the way from home, but punctured just as I was leaving North Walsham.
