Farnham RC 25miles 2up TTT H25/8
21 August

The H25/8 is a course that has most geographical situations, fast dual carriageway, single carriageway, fast descents and a few short climbs. It is on the A31 starting at Bentley in Hampshire, going south to Holybourne, turning then all the way to the Farnham roundabout, turning then back to Holybourne, turning for the last time and finishing about six miles north of Holybourne just past Bentley.
Today was windy, with a very stiff cross headwind when going south, making it very hard going south. It was however dry, thankfully!

Farnham RC were promoting this event, with four man teams (4up ) and tandems, then two man teams (2up ). We had two teams in the 2up event.Team time trials are an enjoyable discipline, if you are not the weakest link. In four man teams three must finish, in two man both must finish, your time being from the last man over the line.
Our teams were pairs that are riding the Duo Normand this year, so good preparation. Ian Bashford with Peter Gray and John Mulvaney with Mike Gibbons ( Bigfoot CC )

Our times:
John Mulvaney/Mike Gibbons......1hr 8min 55sec.....avg sp 21.77mph
Ian Bashford/Peter Gray.............58min 35sec......avg sp 25.61mph

The winning 2up team was a couple of young seniors, Lewis Keightley ( Team Bottrill ) and Jon Rowley ( Poole Whls ), in 52min 6sec, avg sp 28.79mph.
Infact this pair also beat the winning 4up team, which is some achievement!

Cheers, till next week
