Location: Morley, South Norfolk District, United Kingdom
A brisk SW wind was about as good as could be hoped for in this mid-morning time trial on the A11, as the wind was blowing pretty much straight up the dual carriageway, with hardly a whiff of cross-wind. Daniel Bloy (Team Velovelocity) and Lucy Gossage (Cambridge Tri Club) were fastest man and woman out on the road, and Gossage even did some training runs before and after her time trial!

This event was an all-time PB for me, and I managed to knock around 3 minutes off the time set twenty years ago! Here's the bike - a basic Ribble TT frame, running on ancient (but serviced) Zipp 950 rear wheel and Spinergy front. Vittoria Corsa CX 25mm tubs used on both wheels, and at 100psi they give a really comfy ride. The saddle is a Specialized Phenom, and the front section is newly-updated with Deda Fastblack2 clip-on bars on a 3T Vola Pro basebar. I'm trying out the slightly-elevated arm position, and may run it a bit flatter in future as it feels like my arms are slipping down a bit.

That was a very comfortable ride, back on my Vittoria 25mm tubs and a new tri-bar configuration.
