Simon Rouse continued his B.A.R. qualifying events today, this time at the WTTA 100 mile tt at Cirencester. This event was also plagued by horrible windy conditions and there were 15 non-finishers. Those competitors who did finish had times a lot slower than last season. Simon got home in 4 hours 39.25, describing it as the hardest ride he’s done and reporting that he nearly fell off the bike at the end. 2009 victor Jeff Jones (Chippenham Wheelers) was the winner again in 3.48.38.
Jane Pritchard put in a strong ride in extremely windy conditions to finish as fastest lady rider at the DB Max 10 mile time trial. The event was held at the Castle Combe race circuit, and Jane’s time of 27.19 was good enough for 23rd overall. James Chant also took part and also struggled against the wind and finished 18th in 25.29. Rob Pears (Bath CC) was the overall winner in 21.09. Here are some photos of Jane in action
