Race 16 – ITT Club Championship 2018 Provisional results

posted in: Club, Cycling, Results | 0

The Individual Time Trial is often referred to as ‘the race of truth’. It is a measure of how fast each individual cyclist can ride against the clock, by themselves with no mates to help out, or push the wind. It is also the race where lots of folks are tempted to brings out the ‘bike bling’ – specialist time trial bikes, aero bars, disk wheels – in fact anything that they believe might help them get that bike to go faster.

Tonight Forty one cyclists presented themselves to the starter for the Club Championship race, 39 to contest the full 40 kms course and 2 to contest the short course. The race starts just over the bridge on Te Ore Ore Road, turns onto Bideford Road the then heads up the Whangaehu Valley, returning to finish near the Marae on Bideford Road.

With a warm North West Wind to push into on the way out, everyone was working hard and feeling the strain in the legs¬†and the burn of their heart and lungs as they tried to find the right gear to propel themselves forward as fast as possible. It is a testing course, that gradually climbs all the way to the turnaround and doesn’t feel like it ¬†gives the rider much benefit on the way back, even though there are a few sections that are decidedly downhill and wind behind. By the time most riders turned, the breeze that made the outward section so hard seemed to have died, so there way no relief on the way back to the finish. When you have good legs, you don’t notice, but when a rider is having a bad day, it is certainly 40 kms of pain and frustration.

Congratulations¬†tonight to Ben Knight who was the only rider to crack the hour mark finishing in 59 minutes and 46 seconds, and he did so on a single speed bike! In second place was Derek Roberts and third was Mark Langlands. In the women’s race Belinda Fuller finished fastest in a time of 1 hour 9 minutes and 53 seconds. Second was Kirsten Goodin and third Lesley Mouat. The full results posted are provisional at this stage, and yet to be confirmed.

Congratulations also to all our riders who represented ACM admirably in the Wellington Masters 2 day tour. Notable achievements from Darren Southon who was 1st male rider in C-Grade, Rex Dowding 1st male rider in D-Grade, Ray Haste who was 2nd, Greg Baillie who was 3rd and Mike Parker 5th all in E-Grade. Good luck to all ACM members who will represent us in the first of the Interclub Races on Sunday. This is hosted by Wellington Masters.
