SCCU 10 Report

There were eight starters for the Phoenix yesterday and the first thing I am glad to report is that the cone fairy managed to stay away for this one after this race was cancelled mid-event last year and with us having to cancel our evening 10 earlier in the week. It was a lovely sunny and dry morning with the first rider off at 6.30am. The G10/57 course is predominantly uphill on the way out but this proved to be the fastest part of the course with a steady tailwind helping the riders up to the last roundabout. Some of the homeward legs proved to be a bit of a slog despite gravity being on our side.

We had some very pleasing performances with David Watt gaining another pb to be the first KPRC rider home in 23.16. I'm sure that by the end of the season on a good night he will be well under the 23 minute mark and have a 59.xx  25 mile time. I was pleased with my best ride of the season to follow David home with a 24.03 and Simon T continues to find some form, being only 16 seconds behind.

Lynda achieved a personal best too in 27.53 with Jake taking all the women's scratch points in 27.44, despite rocking up to the startline late. At least Jake had a thorough warm-up!

So that was another 9 points for us in the Rawson Shield and once again, we are looking pretty unbeatable for it. The next SCCU Rawson Shield event is the SCCU 50 at the end of June, swiftly followed by the SERC 10. Get your entries in via the CTT website. Hopefully see you there.
