Lea Valley Club 30 - Results and Race Report

    The marathon runners did 26 miles last Sunday but the Lea Valley Time Trialists did 30 in the cold. The 32nd Association 30 Time Trial event was joint organised by Lea Valley and Shaftesbury and it was great to see the 2 clubs working together to put on a good event. There were 12 entries, all turned up on the day with 5 Lea Valley riders (one up on last year). Despite the forecast of rain all Sunday morning and the reality of downfalls through the night, the event was dry with few puddles to hinder our efforts. Stan acted as event secretary on the day and entertained those signing on all with his exploits of his past pro rides with Anquetil and his future plans to break the world hour record for his age category.

    Armin started the field off and got to the line on time! James Hodges and Chris West put in their first 30 event. Despite reservations from Chris having conned by Mark’s assurance that it was ‘only and extra 5 miles’ from our usual events, was content to spend over 80mins crouched uncomfortably on his bike. Derek was his usual sleek self and was the fastest Lea Valley Rider (1.16.57) with James an impressive 2nd (1.22.22) and Chris not far behind (1.25.47) with Mark (1.30.51) and Armin (1.46.28) finishing up the field.

    Thanks to Lea Valley Marshalls Rob Smart and Ken Bacon and Stan Broome for acting as Event Secretary on the day. Any offers to plan the next one in 2016?
